"Wait For Me" by Bob Seger

There's a night-roaming wolf in it, too. No doubt the wolf, the open country, empty roads and motorbike symbolise freedom - the man's freedom.

In terms of representation the gender roles are somewhat stereotypical: she's a blond picture of purity, dressed in white, passively hanging out the washing while she muses over the return of her 'mobile', biker-boyfriend dressed in black. However Segar's "trailer-trash" couple are invested with more romantic passion than one would expect from a blander, middle class couple from the suburbs.
