"Thunder Road" by Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band.

OK, back to the 70's: With a working appellation of "Wings For Wheels", The Boss went through several titles AND girls in the song, including Angelina and Christine, before settling on a final name and heroine. The opening track for his seminal '75 "Born To Run" album, it was inspired by Roy Orbison "...singing for the lonely...". The title is taken from a '58 Robert Mitchum film. On stage it was a showcase for Clarence "The Big Man" Clemons' sax prowess - he left us on June 18.

Yesterday's answer: "You're Sixteen" by Johnny Burnette. From Jeff Bluml: "I think that this is the only album that all three of The Beatles actually all performed on, at different times, after the break up. Ringo actually acknowledges all three as the album fades if I remember correctly."
