  • Does Mary's dress wave or sway?
    Definitely both.
  1. Those 'pretty average' official releases include Seeger Sessions, Magic, The Promise, Wrecking Ball, not to mention the BTR anniversary box set, and the Live in Barcelona show. To me, that's way above pretty average.
  2. I'm actually very happy. I've been dying to get a remastered copy of both Greetings and The Wild.... I'll finally get them, with 5 others and a booklet that may or may not be ground-breaking, but it's something new. Bring it on.
  3. Badlands Jungleland Racing in the Street Land of Hope and Dreams Thunder Road (I was really tempted to put 'Pony Boy' in to stir things up)
  4. From what I've seen written about on this forum, from what I've seen on twitter, and the fans (casual and fanatic alike) that I know, the general consensus is that of dislike towards the song. It's a polarising song I guess.
  5. Great shout. County Fair contains one of my all-time favourite Springsteen lyric: "It's James Young and the Immortal Ones, two guitars, baby, bass and drums" My mind is blown every time I hear that line, it's pure genius.
  6. Outlaw Pete? It can't possibly be underrated: Bruce official website has recently made plain that it is "celebrated", didn't it? This is true, but it does seem that the majority of fans dislike it. They may dislike it all the more when its companion book appears. Great song, easily the stand-out on WOAD (and would have been a stand-out on any of Bruce's releases since HT / LT). Not Born To Run-great but still one of Bruce's best efforts in the 1990's-2000's. Along with Girls In Their Summer Clothes and All I'm Thinkin' About. Never understood the negativity towards this song, none of it. I agree completely. I said it on this before, somewhere, but it's a return to the epic, not really seen since Jungleland. Every part of it is great, lyrically, musically. Loved it live, too.

  8. Outlaw Pete. Anyone got a can opener for this pesky can of worms?
  9. Just perfect. Thank you for this.
  10. American Beauty. (It's awful)
  11. The River - Seeger Sessions style.
  12. Train Song from 'A Tear Must Fall'
  13. Have a few on the go at the moment, Dracula by Bram Stoker; an academic study of vampires; and M.R. James's collected ghost stories.
