Album: The RiverReleased: 1980
When Springsteen performs this live, it's usually as part of the encore. He often starts it off by dragging his guitar across the microphone stand, and extends it well past 10 minutes. Sometimes Roy Bittan plays a number on the piano while the rest of the band leaves the stage.
Springsteen wrote this to energize his live shows on the River
tour. Other songs he wrote for this reason include "Hungry Heart
," "Cadillac Ranch," "Two Hears" and "I'm A Rocker." While the others weren't played much on his later tours, Bruce often plays this still to this very day.
