"PINK CADILLAC" kom på banen som et begrep, som et slags ikon i den tidlige rock’en, da Elvis skiftet ut den originale tekstlinjen til Arthur Gunter og bakte inn dette bildet i teksten til "Baby. Let’s Play House" i 1955. Det var også en 1955-modell rosa Cadillac Elvis kjøpte det året, en modell som i årevis sto som et av de mest profilerte klenodiene på hans Graceland-eiendom da Graceland ble åpnet for publikum. Bruce Springsteen tok tak i dette rock’n’roll-ikonet og utga sin "PINK CADILLAC" som b-side på singlen "Dancing In The Dark" i 1984. Som ihuga Springsteen-fan kjøpte Eigil på denne tiden alle disse single-platene med Springsteen, nettopp for å få tak i de mer ukjente b-sidene, og derfra var ikke veien lang til scenerepertoaret til NJS. "PINK CADILLAC" i NJS’ versjon ble koblet opp mot Henry Mancini’s "Peter Gunn" (som NJS hadde gjort på "1958"-utgivelsen), og det er dette medleyet vi hører på utgivelsen "NJS  - LIVE!», antagelig i et opptak fra sent 1980-tall.

Pink Cadillac

(Bruce Springsteen) 

Well now you may think I'm foolish

For the foolish things I do

You may wonder how come I love you

When you get on my nerves like you do

Well baby you know you bug me

You know, there ain't no secret 'bout that

Well come on over here and hug me

Honey, let’s spill the facts

Well honey it ain't your money

'Cause baby I got plenty of that

I love you for your pink Cadillac

Crushed velvet seats

Riding in the back

Cruisin’ down the street

Waving to the girls

Feeling out of sight

Spending all my money

On a Saturday night

Honey I just wonder what you do there in the back

Of your pink Cadillac

Pink Cadillac



Well now way back in the Bible

Temptations always come along

There's always somebody tempting

Somebody into doing something they know is wrong

Well they tempt you, man, with silver

And they tempt you, sir, with gold

And they tempt you with the pleasure

That the flesh does surely hold

They say Eve tempted Adam with an apple

But man I ain't going for that

I know it was her pink Cadillac

Crushed velvet seats

Riding in the back

Cruisin’ down the street

Waving to the girls

Feeling out of sight

Spending all my money

On a Saturday night

Honey I just wonder what it feels like in the back

Of your pink Cadillac

Pink Cadillac
 

Well now way back in the Bible

Temptations always come along

There's always somebody tempting

Somebody into doing something they know is wrong

But my love is bigger than a Honda

It's bigger than a Subaru

And baby there's only one thing

There’s only one car that will do

You know we ain’t gonna have to drive it

Honey we can park it out in back

And have a party in your pink Cadillac

Crushed velvet seats

Riding in the back

Cruisin’ down the street

Waving to the girls

Feeling out of sight

Spending all my money on a Saturday night

Honey I just wonder what it feels like in the back

Of your pink Cadillac

Pink Cadillac

Pink Cadillac
