As part of our Now We're Talking special issue, we share songs from artists who have talked – sung – through their mental health issues and shared their burdens.
This track is taken from the Boss’s 1982 LP Nebraska, which – like The Cure’s Disintegration – has a foreboding atmosphere. Again deploying the kind of sparse folk arrangement he utilised throughout the record, Springsteen ruminates to mesmerising effect on his tortured relationship with his father: “Last night I dreamed that I was a child... My father’s house stood shining hard and bright / The branches and brambles tore my clothes and scratched my arms”. In a career filled with powerful confessionals, it was a high point.
