Bruce Springsteen is now a rock ‘n’ roll legend whose career has passed the 35 year mark. He is famous for his live performances and album releases, which have sold in the tens-of-millions, but every once in a while he would issue a hit single along the way.”Born To Run” was issued during the late summer of 1975 and reached number 23 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.
It remains on of his signature songs. As good as the lyrics are, it is the music that drives the song. It is intense and can almost be considered a modernization of Phil Spector’s Wall Of Sound.
It remains one of the great rock ‘n’ roll performances of all time.
