"Long Walk Home"

Magic, 2007

"Long Walk Home" reflects a turbulent time in America, marked by economic decline, constitutional decay and endless foreign wars. It's no accident that this is the song Springsteen quoted when he endorsed Barack Obama for president in 2008. "He speaks to the America I've envisioned in my music for the past 35 years," Springsteen said. "A place where 'nobody crowds you, and nobody goes it alone.'"
