I honestly thought The Boss only had like 12 songs

Post by DWags on 2016-10-06, 07:01

I think because so many sound the same. Turns out he has 314 of them.

Somebody actually rated every one of them. My god.

they forgot:

Rock Around the Clock
Copacabana
Barney the Dinosaur Theme Song
Centerfield (put me in coach)
Ice Ice Baby (club remix)
Don't Worry, Be Happy

it would be fun to see where these would fall into this person's list.

Somebody had a lot of time on their hands.  I was big fan from '78 until "Born in the USA" then I quit.

Thunder Road, Promised Land and The River are not rated high enough. Nice nod to Atlantic City at #10.  Nebraska as an album is underappreciated.

the commericialism of Born in the USA, along with the success of it, overshadowed some of the solid tunes on it. Downbound Train is amazing and Bobby Jean is one of the most classic songs about friendship I can think of.

of course, don't forget the patriotic anthem "Born in the USA" - when it gets cranked up at minor league ballparks on the 4th of July, there isn't a dry eye in the house. Wink

but, yeah, my top 5 in no particular order:

Racing in the Street
Backstreets
The River
Thunder Road
Jungleland

of course, that might change by my 3rd cup of coffee.. depending on my mood.

and, yeah, Nebraska is a classic. I listen to it once a week.. the very same vinyl record I bought about 1982.. with the crackles and everything.

(of course, I have a more pristine copy of it as well).

I'd put "Nebraska" right up there with anything by The Smiths in the category of "Songs to listen to during your suicide attempt"

it would be easier to make such a list if it were broken into the theme-atics of each particular song.. even just "acoustic", "rockers", "political", "romantic songs", "piano-driven", "solo", "E Street Band", etc.

And where would you put that upbeat happy go lucky number "Hungry Heart" about a guy who abandons his family?

You were right Wags. He does have only 12 songs, he's simply repackaged them 314 times to sell more product to the feebleminded.

if someone repackaged 12 songs 314 times, there would be 326 songs...

Overrated.

_________________
SHOCKULAR:
Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Springsteen was hyped prior to selling a record like no other act in the history of the music business with the exception of the Monkees. He had covers on Newsweek, Time and Rolling Stone that acted as his record company's (Columbia) PR department He believes his own press clippings and takes himself more seriously than any of the Beatles.

He had 1 decent album, 1 fair album and the rest was filler. Banal is the only word necessary to describe his music. He is known for putting on marathon concerts because he had to make-up for the total lack of substance.

The Justin Beiber of the 70s and 80s. Cheated on his darling wife with that sleazy chick. Standard issue celebrity crap.

Style over substance. Absolutely. Much like his fans who will tell you who they are, but mostly are completely different inside. It's the gilded age of music, beautiful on the outside, rotten on the inside

Springsteen is a fraud. He never spoke for the working class. He was out to get rich and famous and to be taken seriously. Period. His beloved working class was just a device to deflect from his true narcissism and ambition for wealth (which required the money from the pockets of his working class fans). Especially after he turned "serious", his boring songs featured lyrics bitching about everything under the sun, as if the things he complained about in any way affected him other than in the resulting record sales which overloaded his bank account. How ironic. And strategically, to win the favor of the elites and the masses of youth brainwashed with leftist ideology, he's never failed to support a leftist or leftist cause. He's never taken any kind of "courageous" stance that would threaten his wealth. So-he's refused to sell some songs for use by corporations in their advertising. Big deal. How many times over a millionaire is he already? I can assure you, if he was down to living on his tour bus and paying his band with IOU's- he'd be looking to license his songs. Phony. Hypocrite.

Springsteen is a fraud. He never spoke for the working class. He was out to get rich and famous and to be taken seriously. Period. His beloved working class was just a device to deflect from his true narcissism and ambition for wealth (which required the money from the pockets of his working class fans). Especially after he turned "serious", his boring songs featured lyrics bitching about everything under the sun, as if the things he complained about in any way affected him other than in the resulting record sales which overloaded his bank account. How ironic. And strategically, to win the favor of the elites and the masses of youth brainwashed with leftist ideology, he's never failed to support a leftist or leftist cause. He's never taken any kind of "courageous" stance that would threaten his wealth. So-he's refused to sell some songs for use by corporations in their advertising. Big deal. How many times over a millionaire is he already? I can assure you, if he was down to living on his tour bus and paying his band with IOU's- he'd be looking to license his songs. Phony. Hypocrite.

Pretty good breakdown.
