...How far off, I sat and wondered... Started humming a song from 1962
Ain't it funny how the night moves?
As a child of the 60s already feeling out of place in the late 70s, those lines pierced me to the heart. How many nights as a teenager full of angst did I listen to the sound of thunder and count off the seconds trying to determine when the storm would arrive? Because, of course, when the rain would come, I could sleep like a child again.
Yeah, Bob Seger grabbed me when that song came out in 1976 and I've been a fan ever since. You could even say that his songs are cliches of my life: Like a Rock, We've Got Tonight, Still the Same, Against the Wind, Rock and Roll Never Forgets and so on.
This little collection is great and everybody ought to have it. Sure, it could have more cuts, but for what it is, it is really worth the money. I've worn out two copies already and am on the third one! Best part is, even my grown children and my classics loving husband like Bob Seger!
I still wake up to the sound of Thunder... and hum Bob Seger's "Night Moves"!
