Cars And Girls (4:26)

Cover of From Langley Park to Memphis

From From Langley Park to Memphis and 54 other releases

This is track #2 from the album.

Paddy McAloon on this song:

“‘Cars and Girls’ isn’t an anti-rock song. It’s simply saying to Bruce Springsteen that his metaphor for everything (‘life’s a highway’) just isn’t big enough to include all the complexity and sadness in the world.” - NME, March 25, 1989

Brucie dreams life's a highway too many roads bypass my way
Or they never begin. Innocence coming to grief
At the hands of life - Stinkin' car thief, that's my concept of sin
Does heaven wait all heavenly over the next horizon ?

    My dad learned how to use YouTube just a month or two before he died. He insisted on listening to this song over and over, and would sometimes cry while listening to it. I didn't understand it at the time, but I do now.

    Getting kicked squarely in the nads is one of the things that hurts more than cars & girls.....just to be honest.

    Adoro esse som. Nos 80's eu ouvia a Globo fm 92,5 e tocava sempre. Boas lembranças dessa época.
