Song of the Day 5/24/10

The best 666 songs of alltime countdown continues every day, all the way to #1. Monday’s song is #66:

Bruce Springsteen – Backstreets

Timeless epic from the viewpoint of a down-and-out kid trying to stay sane, and to maybe even find some fun, in the inescapable slums. It could be Asbury Park, it could be Port-au-Prince, it could be St.-Denis, either way you’re eventually “stranded in the park, and forced to confess to hiding on the backstreets.” And it’s the great shining moment of pianist Roy Bittan’s career. From Born to Run.
