Knockouts from the past

25 August 2019

Artist: Bruce Springsteen
Song: Born To Run – released as a single 25 August 1975, 44 years ago today
Story: The song is a love letter to a girl named Wendy, for whom the hot rod
riding protagonist seems to possess the passion to love, just not the patience
Album: Born To Run – released the same day as the title track/single
Success: Although it stranded at #23 on the US Singles Chart it was The Boss‘ huge breakthrough moment also because it was the steamy wall-of-sound highlight at
his live firework shows

Here’s a boiling 80s live version…

And here the LP’s version with lyrics…
