A Love So Hard and Filled with Defeat

As a First Day of Spring song, "Backstreets" is clearly more suited to being a First (or any) Day of Summer song, but I will admit that I play it every first day of spring every year anyway to celebrate. Maybe it's the piano intro, fading in gently and prettily, the way a perfect spring arrives. I dunno. Clearly, I need little excuse to play this, one of Bruce's great signature songs, but the feeling of hope in that piano is something I sorely need these days, so maybe that's why.
