Take hold #ThunderRoad #BruceSpringsteen

I think that one of the most important messages of Thunder Road is that it’s a song of self-discovery: if you hear it as a teenager for the first time, while your are having your first troubles at school, or with your parents (or both!), it’s one of those songs that speak to you. Suddenly there’s another human being in the world who gets you, who really GETS you, and it’s a rock’n’roll singer. And he’s telling you that it’s ok to be weird, or not conformed, or not fabulosly hot, you’ll come around it one day. Above all, he tells you that you are not alone in all this. That’s where a lot of us started, with that song and those words. And that’s why you carry this song with you forever.
