Description: The Wrestler EDIT

Bruce Springsteen wrote and recorded “The Wrestler” at the request of Mickey Rourke – who starred in the movie of the same name. The song won the 2009 Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song.

According to director Darren Aronofsky, Bruce Springsteen wrote “The Wrestler” because “He’s a tremendous fan of Mickey’s and when he heard about this film, he felt that this was something that Mickey’s been looking for for years. So he wanted to help, and that’s the only reason he did it. And he did it for basically nothing.”
