  1. That's exactly what I thought. I'm amazed he can sing at all!
  2. Hmm. I do hear a bit of the melody of Fade to Black in the verses now you’ve said it. Funnily enough, that’s the bit I like! I would boldly state that there’s something to like in every Bruce song. With this one I just find the chorus a bit dull and insipid.
  3. I agree. A forgettable dirge. Better than it was but a dirge nonetheless. Don’t understand the excitement for the film either. I get the same feeling I did for Springsteen and I - cringe. I just hope to god we don’t get a Bruce biopic while I’m still alive. Yes, I’ve had a crap day and yes I’m grumpy. Bah humbug.
  4. Wow! And I thought I was the only fan of Fade to Black! Nice work Daisey.
  5. There goes my Miracle. Came up on shuffle and, having not heard it for a while (been skipping it when listening to WS), I really enjoyed it again!
  6. Oh Yeah! Release Cardiff 2013 from the vaults!
  7. Ok, here we go. Let's shuffle... 1) What Love can Do from WOAD. Ok, happy to hear this - been quite a while. Like the licks from Stevie. Decent opener. 2) Be True live from the Chimes EP. Now we're talking! Superb. My favourite version by some miles and this shuffle experiment is rocking so far. 3) Harry's Place from whatever that album was. Oh dear. Time for a bathroom break. Not Bruce's finest song. 4) Backstreets live from Winterland 1978. And we're back. What can I say? It doesn't get much better than this. Still stellar after the millionth listen. 5) Back in your Arms from Tracks. Would have preferred a rocker to end the set but this will do nicely. I still think that Bruce could have done a better version and arrangement of this song but I'm generally happy to listen to this one whenever shuffle or mood dictates. All in all, not a bad selection if a bit eclectic. Good thread BTW .
  8. Fantabulous! Hadn’t seen that before.
  9. Almost certainly the best thing I’ve ever heard . Actually, I’ve heard worse and this has a weird novelty value to it. But who in hell thought it was a good idea? Like Frankie goes to Hollywood covering BTR.
  10. Chasin' Wild Horses. My current favourite from Western Stars.
  11. Here's another one from my upcoming tribute album: Unsatisfied Heart .
  12. Indeed. I varied the beat in places but for the most part it unintentionally mirrors the SOP rhythm pattern. Good spot. Frankly, I'll take any comparisons with SOP!
  13. Well, I don't know if it's exactly the same but it's certainly a drum machine. It wasn't intentional!
  14. Thanks. Good question. I did do this one before the contest as it happens but it was one of many. I started recording some Bruce covers about a year ago. All kinds of stuff. The idea was to make my own ‘tribute’ album to mark the 20th anniversary of me seeing Bruce with the E Street Band. I have basically finished a good album or two’s worth of songs now. Just need to put it together. I’ll post links etc. when done and so anyone interested can have a listen/download if so inclined. Watch this space as they say.
