Bob Seger - Against the Wind

Bob Seger - Against the Wind
"Against the Wind" is a song by Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band from the 1980 album Against the Wind. "Against the Wind" is the highest ranking single from the album, peaking at #5. Glenn Frey of the Eagles sang background vocals on this song.

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.

During an interview on WWFX, "100 FM The Pike", Bob Seger said that "Against the Wind" came about from his days as a high-school cross country runner. The line "Let the cowboys ride!" towards the song's end is a reference to the closing lyrics of the song "Santa Fe/Beautiful Obsession" by Van Morrison.

Seger later said that the line "Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then" bothered him for awhile, but that everyone he knew loved it, so he left it in. He also said that it has since appeared in several other hits by other artists, so that proved it was o.k.
