CARS AND SEX AND CRUMBLING AMERICAN INDUSTRAYYYYYYYYYYY

This week marks forty years since the release of one of music's greatest and most important albums: Born To Run, by Bruce Springsteen. Though the entirety of Springsteen's catalog is a life-affirming and soulful look at cities you'll never visit because the nicest hotel on TripAdvisor is a two star Rodeway Inn, we thought we'd list our favorite tracks from this album in particular.

- The Ghost of Tom Choad

- Women in Driftin' Linens

- The Factory (Of Unfulfilled Promises (This Is A Metaphor))

- Freedom Burger

- Glidden All-Weather Eyes

- Thundarr Road (DJ Lion-O Remix)

- I Was Young, and Now I'm Old, and It's Different

- Ebolarita/Come Dancin'

- Lonesome Willie Scabies

- Trampin'

- Diane Warned Me (About Rest Stop Chili)

- Unleaded Sex

- Touching the Hemseam of Freedom

- Drizzle Highway

- Better Days (aka "Fartin' Jenny, Dry Your Eyes We're A-Drivin' to California.")

- 39 Minutes of Trumpet Recorded Inside A Derelict Barge

- One Headlight
