Boss Time.

I realised that in the Springsteen quote I posted on Saturday about Orbison, a clue was included about how to interpret one of his songs:

[Roy] was the true master of the romantic apocalypse you dreaded, and knew was coming after the first night you whispered, I love you, to your new girlfriend. You were going down.

That last line is, with grammatical adjustments, the name of a crowd favourite on Born in the USA. And all this time I’d taken it as an innuendo.

Anyway, I heard it played once this summer at the Olympic Park. Check that divine opening riff.
