You've Got It

Album: Wrecking Ball (2012)
  • The eighth track on Wrecking Ball is a simple bluesy number, in which Springsteen tells his girl, "Ain't no school ever taught it, ain't no one ever bought it - but baby, you got it." After the economic despair of the first seven tracks, this lusty little pop rock gem comes as a light relief. It also acts as a prelude to the gospel theme of the final three tracks.
