New album due out in a month - I'm stoked for it. Basically recorded live in the studio, with minimal overdubs.
She compiled a decent list, but Jungleland is too far down it, and the absence of this one is a problem:
That is my favorite bruce song and most have never heard it...
There are so many good songs. I would add Badlands as well.
I always hated those rims....
Too many great ones left off but a decent start.
Me and Crazy Janey making love in the dirt,
Singing, our birthday songs..
He’s doing all right for 71!
I saw him in 1974 at a 3,000 seat theater. Pretty great.
Saw him once back in '78 and he did a 4 hour show. The Detroit Medley was
especially great (Mitch Ryder covers). What a great band he had back then!
I loved the earlier stuff. He's a great songwriter I think. He created a unique sound. Happy Birthday Bruuuuuuuuuce.
fave Bruce song...
And with Flo & Eddie!!
My favorite song wasn’t on her list either.
The Big Man at his best, although a short solo, that tenor sax hits home with me.
@Ron R first 2 posts were from The Wild, The Innocent and The E Street Shuffle. Outstanding choice! Taken as a whole this "suite of songs" is a high water mark. It's one of the most energetic and engaging musical stories I've had the pleasure of hearing. (I dare you to listen to the whole thing through without getting up for some dancin' or air guitar...Can't be done!) Greetings From Asbury Park is a close second. Yup, there's lots of great music and songs after those 2 but I really think those 2 stand out. I'd not heard anything similar before them and it was a real breath of fresh air at the time they were released. Happy B'Day Brucie!
“Point Blank” is definitely in my top ten Bruce songs. So poignant, so emotional!
I had a hard time processing the number of 71 for the Boss. I realized I'm 62 so now it all makes sense. I saw him live once and I will tell you this, I have never seen a performer hold a crowd in the palm of his hand like the Boss. It was an incredible experience.
I saw him twice. Once at Veteran’s Stadium supporting the “Born In The USA” tour. We were in peanut heaven, but it was still heaven! He played the usual three hours straight, but he played old rock & roll covers, of which I can’t remember. But, I remember the vibe.
Then, at Hershey, PA, 12 years ago. We had 12th row seats for that one.
Yeah, he was in command! That’s what a boss does! And, even though the tics were general admission, we got there early enough, and I always had a knack for getting up as close as I could without being pushy.
