Songfacts®:

  • What does a God of Thunder need - how about a Goddess of Thunder? Jon Mikl Thor has been married twice, so chances are this song is about his second wife Katherine Elo, as quite likely is "On Golden Sea." His first marriage, to Rusty Hamilton, appears to have ended because of his work commitments, something that is not exactly unknown in music and showbiz circles.

    "Thunder Road" has lyrics by Mikl, music by Thor/Leibel/Soda. Running to 3 minutes 14 seconds. >>
