    Hollywood Nights

    Charted at #12.

    "I had to stay in LA for 2 and 1/2 months [while recording the album]. I rented a house for the second month and a half...it was up in the Hollywood Hills and every night when we'd get back from the studio.

    "I would look out and there would be all the lights of the city. I was just sitting there one night with an electric guitar, and I started bashing it out. And there it was." Late 1981 radio interview.

    Seger: "The chorus just came into my head; I was driving around in the Hollywood Hills, and I started singing 'Hollywood nights/Hollywood hills/Above all the lights/Hollywood nights.' I went back to my rented house, and there was a Time magazine with Cheryl Tiegs on the cover...I said 'Let's write a song about a guy from the Midwest who runs into someone like this and gets caught up in the whole bizarro thing.'" Gary Graff, October 1994, Detroit Free Press. "Bob Seger Tells The Stories Behind The Hits.
