Souls Of The Departed

by

Bruce Springsteen



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Springsteen was inspired by television images of the Persian Gulf War and the Los Angeles Riots.
This is a commentary on racial and social injustice. Often viewed as a patriotic champion after "Born In The USA," Springsteen has been openly critical of American politics.
Lucky Town and Human Touch were released on the same day, almost 5 years since Springsteen's last album, Tunnel Of Love. Many fans felt he should have released one double-album rather than 2 full price singles.
