Song of the Day: Bruce Springsteen – Bobby Jean

On this day in 1985, Bruce Springsteen went to number one on the U.K. Album Chart for the first time with Born in the U.S.A. The album had been out since its U.S. release date of June 4, 1984 and had already been a smash elsewhere. Seven of the 12 songs on the album were released as singles (all reached the Top 10), and the five that weren’t were still pretty great. This is one of those five, but even though it wasn’t released as a single, it reached No. 36 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart anyway. It’s a very Springsteen-esque anthem punctuated by a killer sax solo.
