A Certain Steppenwolf Song

Category: Rated G

By Alan B. Combs


I’m aging, but not all that gracefully, it seems. My wife plays a Jammin’ Oldies station on her car radio. You should know that my type of music is nearly 100% Folk and Country, so that stuff is really foreign to my nature.

However, I may have missed out on some good, inspirational material. The other day on her station, for example, I heard an old song that somehow I had missed before. I regret missing it, because it truly is so personal — Steppenwolf’s “Born to Be Wide.”


Chris Cole added:

It just confirms the notion that exposure to culture broadens one!

(By that criteria, I’m VERY cultured…. or consider the following…)

One of the things in the area of pursuing uncontrolled lusts and fleshly desires that the Bible condemns is gluttony. I can identify with my own failure in that area by quoting King David in that, as I look down, “my sins are ever before me!”

    Wasn’t it the author of The Picture of Dorian Gray that was born to be Wilde?
