About this song

"Glory Days" is a 1984 song, written and performed by American rock singer Bruce Springsteen. In 1985 it became the fifth single released from his massively successful album Born in the U.S.A. "Glory Days" was recorded in April or May 1982 (sources differ) during the first wave of Born in the U.S.A. sessions. Even though the album went through several different phases of what would be on it, "Glory Days" was always seen as one of the cornerstones. The song is a seriocomic tale of a man who now ruefully looks back on the so-called glory days of himself and people he knew during high school.
