Bob Seger: 15 Songs You Can Stream Now

After long holdout, select tunes from legendary rocker finally available on Spotify and other streaming services

"Old Time Rock and Roll" (1978)

Before it was immortalized as the soundtrack to Tom Cruise sliding his socks across Risky Business' hardwood floor, "Old Time Rock and Roll" was a hit single in 1979, a slice of nostalgia that still seems unmoored from time, but was yearning for a past not even 20 years in the rearview. The song was co-written by Muscle Shoals pen George Jackson (alongside songwriter Thomas Jones), and its funky old sound was actually a demo courtesy of the actual Muscle Shoals Swampers. "Seger liked the song so much he tried to cut it himself, but after numerous tries, with the Swampers and with his band, he finally gave up," Muscle Shoals engineer Jerry Masters told SongFacts.com. "He and [producer] Punch Andrews decided to buy the demo track from us and put his vocal on it, and that ended up being the record. It's a classic." CW
