I know this isn’t the original and today I would probably prefer the Springsteen version, but I was six years old when this was the number one song in the US and it was on the radio all the time. The single was the first record I ever bought and I played it on my Mickey Mouse record player that used his arm to hold the needle on the record. Later that year my dad installed a stereo in our family van with speakers in the back. I remember the day he finished installing it and turned it up with this song playing on the radio. I stood in the back of the van, right in the middle, and heard true stereo for the first time in my life. I still smile every time I hear this song.
