Bruce Springsteen – Thunder Road (Live in 1978)

“Thunder Road”. One of the greatest rock and roll songs ever recorded, from one of the greatest rock and roll records ever released – Born To Run. Bruce’s story telling shines in “Thunder Road”, and this performance from 1978 is rock and roll heaven. Lines like this are unmatched anywhere else in rock and roll:

“Well now I’m no hero, that’s understood / All the redemption I can offer, girl, is beneath this dirty hood.”

Holy shit! When Bruce sings that, how can you not get goose bumps? It’s so rock and roll.
