Springsteen: "With a young son and about to get married (for the last time) I was feelin' like a happy guy who has his rough days rather than vice versa."
This was the only track from Lucky Town included on Springsteen's 1995 Greatest Hits album.
This is the first track on Lucky Town, which was released the same day as Human Touch. Springsteen decided to do this after Guns N' Roses simultaneously released their albums Use Your Illusion I and II.
Joe from St. Marys, PaProbably my favorite Springsteen song from a lyrical standpoint.
"It's a sad funny ending to find yourself pretending, A rich man in a poor man's shirt"
"But it's a sad man my friend who's livin' in his own skin And can't stand the company"
WOW - how true is this?
Joe from St. Marys, PaGreat line at the end of the song. "Halfway to heaven and just a mile outta hell And I feel like I'm comin' home." I think its about a guy on the first steps to the road of recovery.
Jim from Long Beach, CaThis is a happy Bruce song. Which he was in the early 90's with a happy marriage and kids...
Michael from North Arlington, NjThe video has his son Evan in the video
Rick from ManchesterQuite a fast tempo for Springsteen, but the lyrical content is pretty similar to most of his stuff. Really good song, always puts me in a good mood.
"St. Elmo's Fire (Man In Motion)" was not written for the movie, but for Rick Hanson, a wheelchair athlete whose 1985 "Man In Motion" tour logged 24,856 miles on his wheelchair in 34 countries while raising $26 million for spinal cord research.
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
