Jason Thompson and MIshael Morgan in The Young and the Restless

Yesterday the writers at the Young and the Restless used the American suburb term “backstreets” in a way Bruce Springsteen did when he wrote about the streets of New Jersey.

There is an enthusiasm throughout that song that though Bruce and his love interest aren’t what we would call today “rich”, life was pretty damn good driving around freely on hidden backstreets at night just being with people you liked.
