Album Notes
This is an epic song and it has been an epic voyage to record my version. I first started singing the song over 15 years ago in Melbourne. When I delved into the lyrics I realized it was like a beautiful movie depicting the characters from my suburban youth and telling our story.
Even though Springsteen had grown up in New Jersey, USA and I had grown up west of Sydney, Australia, the characters and the mood were the same.
To me it was like 'Rumble Fish' and 'The Outsiders.' We were those kids and those kids are in this amazing song. This was and still is, our song.
Springsteen captures all the longing in the teenage heart, all the dreams in the teenage mind - the fog of the overwhelming present which tried to steal away the passion of our future and tie us down to an ordinary life. That is what we longed to escape and some of us ran - I know I did.
And perhaps I'm still running, forever seeking that most beautiful, that most meaningful, that most passionate and perfect moment a life can bear. - AM

Love The Vocals
Beautiful Anne, love the vocals. An anthem of my youth as well, growing up on Long Island.

I'm a sucker for a great cover song
I'm a sucker for a great cover song, and have collected and loved them forever. This is a song I'd never think would work for someone other than Springsteen, as sometimes a musician or songwriter seems to just about exhaust the possibilities with the original version. But you sure have done something different here, and I tip my hat to you, the band and the master of mastering.
