Riding on the freeway of love

Aretha Franklin‘s big hit from 1985 uses the freeway, aka interstates, as a metaphor. But the actual freeways shown in the music video don’t look nearly as inviting as the footage of old Detroit cars.

Also of note: That’s Clarence Clemons, of Bruce Springsteen‘s E Street Band, playing saxophone.

The song contains yet another reference to pink Cadillacs. More on that later.
