I posted a video of this song in the video section of AMD, and it seems this section of AMD is pretty much ignored. Except by a small handful of us, so I want to post it as a blog as well...

I've always loved this song, and I think it might be his best ever...outside of his song "Turn the Page."

According to Timothy White, a writer for Rolling Stone, "'Against the Wind' is about trying to move ahead, keeping your sanity and integrity at the same time."

And according to Bob, during an interview on 100 FM The Pike...he said that "Against the Wind" came about from his days as a high-school cross country runner.

To me, it's a song about a lost love...and everytime I hear this song...I think of my lost love...Heather.

Guess this is simply one of those songs, that can mean different things, to different people.

I also think this song has the greatest line ever written in a song...

Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then

I'm just wondering, for those of you who have heard this song...what does it mean to you?

I'd also like to know what you think is the greatest line or lyric ever written in a song...

Against the Wind

It seems like yesterday
But it was long ago
Janey was lovely she was the queen of my nights
There in the darkness with the radio playing low
And the secrets that we shared
The mountains that we moved
Caught like a wildfire out of control
'Til there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove
And I remember what she said to me
How she swore that it never would end
I remember how she held me oh so tight
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then

Against the wind
We were runnin' against the wind
We were young and strong, we were runnin'
Against the wind

The years rolled slowly past
And I found myself alone
Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends
I found myself further and further from my home
And I guess I lost my way
There were oh so many roads
I was living to run and running to live
Never worryied about paying or even how much I owed
Moving eight miles a minute for months at a time
Breaking all of the rules that would bend
I began to find myself searching
Searching for shelter again and again

Against the wind
A little something against the wind
I found myself seeking shelter sgainst the wind

Well those drifter's days are past me now
I've got so much more to think about
Deadlines and commitments
What to leave in, what to leave out

Against the wind
I'm still runnin' against the wind
I'm older now but still runnin' against the wind
Well I'm older now and still runnin'
Against the wind
Against the wind
Against the wind

Still runnin'
I'm still runnin' against the wind
I'm still runnin'
I'm still runnin' against the wind
Still runnin'
Runnin' against the wind
Runnin' against the wind
See the young man run
Watch the young man run
Watch the young man runnin'
He'll be runnin' against the wind
Let the cowboys ride
Let the cowboys ride
They'll be ridin' against the wind
Against the wind ...

I don't go into videos because I unfortunately have dial-up and it takes me about 2 minutes to get about 20 seconds of video to play. And then it's bad. Even my favorite songs aren't worth that.

Although just about anything Seger has ever done would fall into my favorites somewhere.

As for the line..good line..not sure best ever. But I sure think it lots of times.
To me, there are too many really good lines to pick a very best ever in a song.

It is my life. A stuggle that is constant and draining. It is like every time you move forward there is something pushing you back. Every success is followed by failures to overcome. I think the person who said it was like trying to move ahead with your integrity intact was pretty dead on to how this song relates to me.

By the way Turn the page is the best song Bob ever did. Great song to listen to when your driving a truck......

I checked it out earlier today, thinking that it may be a concert or ven a video, but it was just the song with a picture of a horse I think it was. I love this song, and Bob Segar kicks ass. I was just hoping to see a video with it.

*Whew* for a second there I thought that I just did a blog like yours, but after reading on I saw it wasn't.

To answer your question... sorry, I can't help ya out since I don't know that song.

Mar 2 @ 4:33AM  
I thought about it for a real long time. and here it is.......Aerosmith Sweet Emotion with,,,"Some sweat hog mama with a face like a gent
Said my get up and go musta got up and went"

Or ,...Led Zeppelin Livin Lovin Maid..... "With a purple umbrella and a fifty cent hat,
Livin', lovin', she's just a woman.
Missus cool rides out in her aged Cadillac.
Livin', lovin', she's just a woman"

I love all his music........... ah to all the lost loves..........

Bob Seger Live Against the Wind

CC, I think the line means wanting to go back to a simpler time.
I could be wrong Good song!

Mar 2 @ 6:13AM  
I didn't ignore just rarely have time these days to check out videos

I got the song in my head now thank you

Mar 2 @ 7:30AM  
should I mention I also have this album

Mar 2 @ 7:48AM  
My first memories are of The Stones' "Satisfaction," Donovan's "Catch the Wind," and of course Seger's "Against the Wind." I'll let you know what the greatest lyric is after I secure the copyright for one of my new songs, "Two Nights Stand." I'm joking. Perhaps the greatest line is "I have become comfortably numb..." 'though, Paul Simon has written some great ones, such as "And sometimes even music Cannot substitute for tears..."
