    Great music, lyrics and a legendary sax solo. The greatest rock couplet ever written is highlighted in blue.

    one two three four

    The highways jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
    Everybodys out on the run tonight but there's no place left to hide
    Together Wendy we'll live with the sadness
    I'll love you with all the madness in my soul
    Someday girl I don't know when were gonna get to that place
    Where we really want to go and well walk in the sun
    But till then tramps like us baby we were born to run.

    There are better songs than that on the same album. "Thunder Road" and "Jungleland" are both better.

    Reason why? They just are.

    The part I don't like about Springsteen is when it has that clunky Phil Spector wannabe sound. Triangles and chimes, sounds like a music box running in the background with crappy keyboards.

    I bailed on Springsteen after he started trying to :quote: say important things:quote: about the working class.

    Bruce Springsteen is a Faggot.
