Tonight my baby and me, we're going to ride to the sea, and wash these sins off our hands
Springsteen's Darkness on the Edge of Town is the kind of music I like to listen to late at night when I'm in one of those restless, empty moods. Some times, I'll drive down to Little River, park beneath the old dam, and listen to Bruce while I try to size up where my life is heading. Very adolescent and self-consciously cinematic, but what can I say? "Racing in the Streets" is one of my favorites from the album, possibly the most heartbreaking song about car-racing imaginable.
