Capitol P-A-5077 (S97843A) (US 45)
Bob Seger's blue-collar anthem about the individual's
loss of identity in corporate America originally appeared on his 1978's Stranger in Town, and was released
as the B side to "Still the Same", but it was the live version on 1981's Nine Tonight that was released as a
single in its own right, backed by "Hollywood Nights". It peaked at #19 in Canada and #48
in the U.S. and appeared again on Bob
Seger's Greatest Hits in 1994, as well as in a number of films,
including Aspen Extreme, Body Heat, and Striking Distance.
Seger himself admitted that he wrote the song too high for himself,
that "Feel Like a Number" is in the top eschelon of his vocal range.
