Bob Seger on what inspired “Night Moves.” OC:…naiveté too. :27

“First time I ever heard The Beatles was in October of ’63 in Chelsea, Michigan. I was going to see this girlfriend who I wrote ‘Night Moves’ about. It’s totally about our lifestyle as juniors in high school in 1962, which was straight out of the movie American Graffiti. We all had slicked-back hair and leather jackets and wore points and Ban-lon shirts and Levis and were, like, phony tough, you know. Of course, your sexual naiveté, too.”
