Music To Inspire You
Welcome To Music Moves Me!
This week, our challenge is to share a song about cars or racing in anticipation of the Indy 500 later this month. I’m not a racing fan but I like to participate in the challenge themes whenever I can!
With that in mind, today I’m sharing my favorite Bruce Springsteen song of all time – Thunder Road. This is the opening song on his third and breakthrough album, Born To Run. The album, which was released on August 25, 1975, inspired music critic Jon Landau to write the quote that would help propel both him and Bruce to fame:
I saw rock and roll future and its name is Bruce Springsteen.
Picking the right music video to future each week is always a challenge. After listening to several renditions, I came across a video of Bruce performing Thunder Road live at the Hammersmith Odeon in London on November 18, 1975 (just shy of three months after the album release!) This concert marked Bruce’s first introduction to Europe and was such a smash it was later released as his 4th live album! Although the video quality is very dark (after all, this was 1975!), Bruce’s vocal quality is amazing! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

And – if you are a Springsteen fan and would like to know more about the history behind Thunder Road – be sure to check out the second video, where we’ll hear the scoop firsthand from the Boss himself!
