Born to Run, 1975
"The characters on Born to Run were less eccentric and less local than on Greetings and . . . Innocent," Springsteen wrote in Songs. "They could have been anybody and everybody." That's certainly true of "Night": The only song on Born to Run under three minutes, it's an archetypal straight-ahead car song with a Chuck Berry-esque opening line Springsteen grafted from a 1970 Steel Mill song called "Oh Mama."
