True Love Songs: 10 Songs Inspired By Real Romances In The Bands Who Recorded Them

by (@megsokay)

The Band: Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band
The Song: “If I Should Fall Behind”
The Romance: Bruce Springsteen and wife Patti Scialfa were bandmates before they were romantic partners. Even though their bandmates assumed they would hook up on their 1984 Born in the U.S.A. tour, Springsteen met and married Julianne Phillips first. Springsteen’s first marriage was a disaster. The Boss convinced Scialfa to join him again on his 1988 tour and the two fell in love, though they weren’t open about it until Springsteen and Phillips were separated. “If I Should Fall Behind” is a lesser known Springsteen track, but it was written around this time about Scialfa and remains a beautiful and emotional ballad.
