It's not only a song by Bruce Springsteen, successfully covered by Manfred Mann's Earth Band, "Blinded By The Light" is now a movie and I, for one, cannot wait to see it.
ITV News on the set of Gurinder Chadha's Blinded By The Light Blinded by the Light is a comedy/drama, a hybrid musical rooted in the British tradition of quirky comedies. It's based on the memoir 'Greetings From Bury Park' by journalist/broadcaster Sarfraz Manzoor which chronicles his experiences as a British Muslim boy growing up in 1980s Luton and the impact Bruce Springsteen's lyrics had upon him.
Here's what Bruce said after viewing the final cut:
‘Thank you for honoring me so beautifully. Don’t change a thing.’”
