    So, if one were to start with Brucie from scratch, where would one start?

    Sorry to hijack.

    Because of the memories they evoke:

    Born to run
    The River
    Streets of Philadelphia

    For me – Hammersmith 1975

    Born To Run – Live
    Downtown Train
    The River – Live – absolutely love it when he tells his story of growing up and failing his army medical. Superb.

    Rosalita for the exuberance (good place start for Springsteen newbies)
    Because the Night
    Nebraska – for sheer bleakness

    +The River – Wembley 84, he just walked up to the mike and told the story.

    Could easily have three versions of Thunder Road.

    I would definitely begin with born to Run and then work outwards from there, but be prepared for quite a few disappointments after Born in the USA.

    I’m on Fire
    Murder Incorporated
    Secret Garden (but I’m unsure why)

    but Born in the USA and Philadelphia re also vying for top 3 slots…

    Secret Garden – first dance at our wedding. Has to be there really.
    One step up.
    My Hometown.

    Ask me again tomorrow, second two could be different.

    This. Such a sensational live performance.

    Tunnel of Love is massively underrated. Well I like it anyway.

    Now this may make me sound like a Boss-heretic, but I could never get into Nebraska.

    You maybe right about Tunnel of Love but Nebraska noooo,it could be my favourite,it’s an album from a dark place which kind of fits my mood at the moment.

    Brilliant Disguise
    Streets of Philadelphia
    Tougher than the Rest

    I used to listed to Brilliant Disguise on my budget hifi system with a Garrard 301 turntable. Then one day i was invited to play it on £50k worth of Linn and Naim. Spooky!

    The river, gives me a lump in the throat
    Glory days, just love it’s bouncyness
    Tunnel of love, just becuase I remember my mum playing that album while doing the ironing and it makes me smile, quite a lot of my memories of that time don’t make me smile.

    Fat man sittin on a, little stool, takes the, money while his eyes take a walk all over you……..

    Not much newer stuff being picked. Terry’s Song’ll bring a lump to your throat when you know the story behind it. Last Carnival too.

    Newer stuff:
    Girls in their summer clothes, or Death to my hometown.
    Older, Promised land.

    Thunder Road
    Glory Days
    Born to run The River

    There are too many to limit it to just 3 – too hard man! 🙂 It’s probably hard enough to find the top 3 albums of his let alone songs.

    Cadillac Ranch has always been one of my favourites. Strange because it is not anything “special” as a song but I loved it when I first got the River and have loved it ever since.

    Racing in the streets – live, this summer at Wembley was a moment of musical magic

    And pick anything from Jungeleland, Born to run, The River, Badlands, Shackled and drawn, Mary’s place, wrecking ball, glory days, backstreets, thunder road, factory, save my love, Sherry darling, two hearts, no surrender. And that’s just scratching the surface really.

    Starting from scratch with the new stuff then Wrecking Ball is a great album to begin with.
