    Jungleland, The River, Atlantic City.

    Epic tracks, but years ago I could have given some more interesting choices – it’s a long time since I’ve listened to Bruce properly, I’ve forgotten the gems tucked away on the albums.

    Grew up listening to Bruce as a kid, but my getting into music more seriously coincided with him temporarily shitting the bed with that Lucky town – Human touch phase. Parted company then so now just admire from afar.

    I thought I’d contributed to this earlier:

    Atlantic City – cover by The Band
    Because the Night – cover by Patti Smith
    Rosalita

    Thunder Road,
    Candy’ s Room,
    My City of Ruins
    So many good songs seems ridiculous not to pick anything from Nebraska .

    My father’s house, badlands, we take care of our own. Tomorrow would probably bring different choices. 3 is not enough.

    Thunder Road
    The River
    Badlands

    Thunder Road being the only one set in stone. And agree that it could easily be 3 different versions of Thunder Road.

    If you ever get the chance, check out The Rising. They’re an awesome tribute band

    Not had this one yet (yes, I know I’ve had three already…) Beautiful lyric.

    This live version shows that it isn’t just Bruce Springsteen, without the E Street Band he’d would have been nowhere near as effective as an artist. Such a talented group.

    Anything off The River. Its the only double CD I have in the Garage when fettling.

    Oh, and State Trooper.

    There is no way three can be enough. Three albums maybe but three tracks not a chance. Saw him live at bramall lane in Sheffield in the 80’s it was my first concert and ruined everything else ever since. Three and a bit hours of music and stories and good time.
    The boss.

    3 Springsteen songs? Today it is:

    no surrender live/solo acoustic
    ghost of Tom joad live with Tom morello (from London)
    really liking lost in the flood at the moment too.

    I’ve seen Bruce twice this year, once last year and maybe 15 times in total. I grew up on Bruce, discovered my own favorite tracks and albums as a teenager (more nebraska/ stuff from tracks) in adulthood I understand a lot of the songs he wrote when he was around my age and my dad and I have a shared love for Springsteen. We try to see him every year, usually abroad as a bit of father/ son bonding!

    3 from the Boss is a tough call

    1. The River – still gives me goosebumps after all these years .
    2. Promised Land
    3. Then it’s a toss up between Darkness on the Edge of Town and Racing in the Street
    ….but will prob change my mind 5 mins after posting – too hard!

    weirdly I never claim to be a Springsteen fan, but I do have most of his albums and have seen him live. Tomorrows painting the living room day so this thread means it will be Springsteen most of the day

    Anyway:

    Downbound Train
    Youngstown (live in NY version, much more anger behind it)
    The River
    (also Stolen Car, Lonesome Day, Thunder Road…….ask me again tomorrow night and it will have changed)

    I can’t pick just three without trying to listen to the albums again. However Jungle land would be there. Especially since saw him at the Olympic Park this summer. Previously saw him at Leeds on the Born in the USA tour, so it was apt that he did the entire Born in the USA album. Took my 21 year old son who had never understood the Boss. He does now and my CD collection is now on his iPod. Trouble is that I have some of them on just vinyl.

    My 3 favourites are on Tunnel of Love

    Brilliant Disguise
    Tougher Than The Rest
    Walk Like A Man (mainly because it reminds me of my dad)
