The curly-haired guitar slinging rocker of the 70s and 80s released his song “Pink Cadillac” to airwaves across the country. Springsteen’s album Born in the U.S.A. launched him into rock-n-roll stardom. Pink Cadillac wasn’t originally released on the coveted album, but instead listed on the B-side of the record. This classic car brand has been used in numerous songs throughout the history of music as inspiration. The King of rock-n-roll himself, wooed his fans to the gyrating tune “Baby Let’s Play House.” How many artists have used the Cadillac and its persona to expel their own branding you ask? Well. Let’s do a quick run down, completed with links to each song! [ click on the song title to hear the song!]
