Thirty years ago today, "Tunnel of Love" by Bruce Springsteen was No. 1 on the Billboard album chart.
It was created at a time when Springsteen was married to one woman and falling in love with another.
The album reflects Springsteen's emotions as his marriage to Julianne Phillips was falling apart. In his autobiography "Born to Run," Springsteen observes that for the first time his songs weren't about the man on the road, but the man of the house.
He writes, "'Tunnel of Love' captured the ambivalence, love and fear brought on by my new life."
During the Tunnel of Love tour, after separating from Phillips, Springsteen and his bandmate Patti Scalifa became a couple. They are married now and have three children.
