We all love music. And it’s so easy to get caught up with the catchy melody, head bopping beats, and lyrics that seem vague at times. Let’s have a look at some songs that over the years has had many interpretations, without a single one hitting it right.

Born in the U.S.A. by Bruce Springsteen

It’s often used by conservative American politicians like Ronald Reagan to communicate the might of the United States, but Born in the USA is the complete opposite of a blindly patriotic song. Springsteen’s classic is an explicitly anti-war anthem about how the government failed its soldiers during and after the Vietnam War. The sardonic and gruff refrain stayed on as part of Reagan’s presidential campaigns.
