If you've got a minute please have a look at the video opposite.
I've been looking for this song for ages but all I can find is a video. Does anyone know if it's on an album somewhere?
So, so lovely.
Nick Hornby said this:
'Maybe the reason Thunder Road has sustained me for years is that, despite its energy and volume and fast cars and hair, it somehow manages to sound elegiac, and the older I get the more I can hear that. When it comes down to it, I suppose that I too believe that life is momentous and sad but not destructive of all hope, and maybe that makes me a self-dramatizing depressive, or maybe it makes me a happy idiot, but either way Thunder Road knows how I feel and who I am, and that, in the end, is one of the consolations of art.'
I hear ya Nick. This version of the song does it for me.
So you're scared and you're thinking
That maybe we ain't that young anymore
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright
Oh and that's alright with me
