Bob Seger Celebrates Stranger in Town 35th Anniversary In The Studio
Seger joins the show's host Redbeard to look back at the hit release. They sent over these details and quotes: For Seger Stranger In Town was his first effort following the 1976 breakthrough Night Moves.
Stranger was an album Seger blazed through, producing hits like "Hollywood Nights", "Feel Like a Number", "Still the Same" and "We've Got Tonite", a song Bob says was inspired by a popular 1970s film.
"I saw the movie The Sting with Robert Redford and Paul Newman, and I remember that scene where Robert Redford goes to the lady who ran that cafe, at four in the morning and he's trying to get away from the bad guys. And he says, 'It's four in the morning and I don't know anybody.' And she lets him in. And that's where the idea for 'We Got Tonite, forget about tomorrow', came from." Stream the episode here.
