Today's "Death Penalty Song": Springsteen Visits Death Row

As a longtime music maven (former editor at Crawdaddy etc.) and author of a new e-book probing the death penalty in the USA (Dead Reckoning), I thought it would be apt for me to post a video here every day with a song illustrating or commenting on executions in America.   Today:  Bruce Springsteen's "Dead Man Walking."  I should note that the first time I set foot in a prison it was with Bruce in December 1972, and the prison was Sing Sing.   See the first four picks in this series -- from Billie Holiday, Johnny Cash, The Band etc. --  elsewhere on this blog.
