Souls Of The Departed

Album: Lucky Town (1992)
  • 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.
