I'd like to apologise to anybody who has ever lived with me for playing this album nearly every day for I don't know how long.

Born to Run is one of those perfect albums that you play and then you're pissed off that nothing can follow it up so you listen to it enough times to kill your appreciation of it for the day and move onto something completely different. Int'l Players Anthem does the same thing for me.

I swear it does what Dylan should do for me but doesn't. Well, that injected with sax parts, big piano parts, leather jackets and masculine screams. Oh, the masculine scream. The Replacements' Paul Westerberg got his voice from that masculine scream (in my mind any way) and then Kurt Cobain got it from him (and Lennon) thus establishing the four greatest rock vocalists evuhhh (in my mind any way).

From the cheesy line I've got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk (guitar part) to the 10 minute has everything in it but still sounds really passive closing track Jungleland, I wouldn't change a thing about it.

How many ways can you say hey girl let's ruuunnnn? At least 8 really good ways. Thank you, Bruce Springsteen, I love you, man.
