night moves#12 – Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band– “Night Moves” – (1976)

Theory: Bob Seger used to have poor self esteem. Why? Opening lyics here: “was a little too tall coulda used a few pounds.” There are other songs (like “Mainstreet”) where he tears himself down a little too. Anyway, this title track from Seger’s 1976 album – the best album he ever released, as it’s chock full of hits – is the best song on it. It ended up being a top five hit on the Hot 100. The music is perfect for the lyrics describing a high school love affair. It’s a great song.
