Born In The USA To Run – New York City’s RICH GIRLS Doing SPRINGSTEEN

6 July 2020

After sharing new stellar single The Fighter a week ago New York City’s RICH GIRLS,
led by soul-stirring vox Luisa Black, stun with The Boss‘ breakthrough hit BORN TO RUN.

I’m pretty sure the band chose this classic cracker with a purpose as the story of this 45-year old standout – released in 1975 – is highly relevant again in today’s Divided States
Of America
. Rich Girls do not rock as much as the original, they give it a more haunting and yes, more gloomy timbre. Born in the USA to run away in 2020.

In the day we sweat it out on the streets
Of a runaway American dream
At night we ride through the mansions of glory
In suicide machines
Sprung from cages on Highway 9
Chrome wheeled, fuel injected, and steppin’ out over the line
Oh, baby this town rips the bones from your back
It’s a death trap, it’s a suicide rap
We gotta get out while we’re young
‘Cause tramps like us, baby, we were born to run

Fuck you Trump…
