I’ve been listening to so much music recently I thought I should do a more detailed music post. I decided to choose my eight favourite songs to feature a saxophone. There may be great ones in songs by Bruce Springsteen, Pink Floyd and Sade among others, but I just couldn’t leave any of these out. Do you know most of them?
There were ghosts in the eyes of all the boys you sent away
They haunt this dusty beach road
in the skeleton frames of burned-out Chevrolets
Taken from Thunder Road, the opening track of Bruce Springsteen’s breakthrough third album, Born to Run (1975). Although unreleased as a single, it has been regularly performed by ‘The Boss’ on live performances, and is widely considered one of his finest songs.
