Born to Run, 1975

A pounding, fifties-influenced song about a coldhearted woman, "She's the One" rides a Bo Diddley beat ("the beat of the universe," as Springsteen called it introducing the song live) and really takes off during Clemons' towering sax solo; Springsteen later said that he wrote the song so he could hear the solo he heard in his head. It's also the song Roy Bittan played along to when he auditioned for the E Street Band.
