Top Bruce Springsteen songs

Post by Herbie Green on 2016-09-01, 20:12

I am sure you can find a list anywhere but here is my top 3:
1. Thunder Road
1. Used Cars
3. The River

These three songs stand out because Bruce is singing about my life. Actually it isn't even my life but when I hear the songs it becomes my life. That is why these are not only the three best Springsteen songs but three of the best songs ever written.

That one where he flirts with a 14 year old Courtney Cox
That one that Chevy used as a theme song for awhile
That one where he sings like a total badass

Wait who is this guy again.

that's a pretty good three.. so difficult to name the Top 3, as it depends on my mood at the time. However, I'll go with:

1. Thunder Road
2. Backstreets
3. Racing in the Street

The River is definitely in my top 5.. love the intro on the Live record.. back in the late 70's - early/mid 80's Bruce would do a lot more story-telling..

I always crank up Born to Run in the car. I hope you're not hating on that one.

oh heck no - that would be blasphemy. Born to Run is great.. if you can get your hands on the acoustic version from the mid-80's Chimes of Freedom tour, do it.




my claim to fame in life - strumming Bruce's guitar during Born to Run once.. dude was sweating on me.. looking down and laughing.

I hope that "We didn't start the fire..." one isn't in the Top 5.

Oh. That's pretty good.

I'm just glad that Herbie started this thread so we can discuss stuff like this.

Thanks Herbie.

yikes - per Nigel's Rolling Stone review of the top 100 Springsteen songs with an illustrious panel discussion and voting, my top three rank 3, 6 and 4.

not bad if you're trying to align yourself with music critics and artists. However, as I've alluded to many times, my top Springsteen songs depends on my mood, how much I may have had to drink and can change in the blink of an eye.

I think maybe so.

it's a fine tune.. and would mark the pinnacle of the career of 99.9999% of artists out there - but I'm not sure it's his best. I'd put it in the top 10 , for sure.

I tried to scroll down the Top 100 list, but it took forever and I gave up.

you can skip to different segments in increments of 20. I think.
