Top 100 Most Inspiring Songs: Songs 60-41
Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen
Listening to “Born to Run” immediately takes me to the highway, driving a sweet car just getting out of town and escaping from all the stress of life. While that isn’t always realistic, listening to the song makes me feel like I can get to that point in my life – and sometimes that’s enough. The Boss’s gravelly voice, the Big Man’s huge sax solo, Max Weinberg’s driving beats, and the E Street bands carefully crafted symphony all combine to make this the most inspiring Bruce Springsteen song yet. It’s difficult not to smile during most of his material, but if you saw me listening to “Born to Run” I would have a huge smile plastered on my face the entire time. I’m going to go jam it right now!
