Your fave BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN song...? (Happy 60!)

Happy birthday... Bruce Springsteen turned 60 yesterday.

I'm not "the biggest fan" of Springsteen, but 1984 was a great year for him, I like his Born In The USA album.

My fave song is probably "Cover Me".


What's your fave Springsteen song ? biggrin

Too many to name, i couldn't pick a favorite so here's a few, and only a few. The Boss is the best.

Badlands
Darkness on The Edge of Town
Streets of Fire
With Every Wish
Atlantic City
Radio Nowhere
Jackson Cage
Could go on but what's the point. He's the greatest. To me, he's just as important as Elvis or Prince. Don't understand how anyone could hate the guy. Personal or music reasons? or both? Prince is an infinitely hateful guy, wonder how you feel about him.

Nobody does it quite like the "Boss". He is one of the finest songwriters that rock music has ever produced.


My short list of favorites are:

"Point Blank"
"Adam Raised A Cain"
"One Step Up"
"Tunnel of Love"
"Cover Me"
"The River"
"Two Faces"
"Prove It All Night"
"Part Man, Part Monkey"
"I Wish I Were Blind"
"If I Should Fall Behind"
"Loose Ends"
"Atlantic City"

My favourite Bruce Springsteen listening experience is most definitly "Meeting Across the River" and "Jungleland". The two songs go together so well I think of them as one big cinematic dream.

ugh... really impossible to pick just one. He's got so many amazing songs.

Thunder Road & Brilliant Disguise definitely rank up there for me.

Born to Run is obviously one of the great rock songs in history (as is the entire album.) Born in the USA is stellar from start to finish.

Tunnel of Love is great as well, and of course Nebraska, and... well the list goes on.

But I guess if I had to pick one.... Thunder Road. That's essential Bruce, IMHO.

Happy 60th to The Boss! Sounds as great as ever.

My second favorite artist.

My favorite album is Darkness on the edge of town, my favorite song changes alot but if push came to shove I'd probably go for Racing In The Street.

Thunder Road (he very rarely performs it properly though)

And I have been loving Girls In their Summer Clothes recently

are there any Springseen fan sites as good as this one? I am a prince fan but not of him personally he's a congenital asshole. Bruce is twice the man that he is I think, I wish they had a good site for him.

"Dancing in the Dark" is my favorite, but I admit I'm not a huge fan. I also love the Pointer Sisters' take on "Fire."

I'm not a huge fan of classic rock/rock, but I casually listen to Bruce and find his live performances enjoyable.

My favorites are Streets Of Philadelphia and Tenth Avenue Freeze Out.
