4. "Johnny Bye-Bye"
While the title and opening two lines of "Johnny Bye-Bye" allude to Chuck Berry's 1960 song "Bye Bye Johnny," the stripped-down tune ultimately pays homage to Elvis Presley and discusses how Springsteen was affected by his death. Particularly, Bruce has said that the song is a reaction to the "type of fame Elvis had . . .the pressure of it, the isolation that it seems to require" and that it was recorded in the wake of Nebraska as part of a "series of songs with a small, little rhythm section."
