It’s hard to believe anyone would turn down a song BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN wrote specifically for them. But the “Harry Potter” people did.
The song was called “I’ll Stand By You Always”, and when Bruce tried to give it to the franchise, they rejected it.
In a new interview, Bruce said, quote, “It was pretty good. It was a song that I wrote for my eldest son, it was a big ballad that was very uncharacteristic of something I’d sing myself.
“But it was something that I thought would have fit lovely; at some point I’d like to get it into a children’s movie of some sort because it was a pretty lovely song.”
He offered them the song in 2001. It still hasn’t been released.
