  1. It was mentioned on E Street Radio that women are quite taken with this album.  I would agree.  My wife likes Bruce, and I have taken her with me to 15-16 concerts including Broadway, but this album has really captured her.  Also, her daughter, my step-daughter, is obsessed with it.  The funny thing is so is her dog.  She sent me footage of her little dog howling to the instrumental of Chasing Wild Horses.  The little guy was looking up and howling at the top of his lungs. :lol:

  2. What is your favorite verse from a song in Western Stars?

    My all time favorite Springsteen verse is this from Thunder Road:

    There were ghosts in the eyes
    Of all the boys you sent away
    They haunt this dusty beach road
    In the skeleton frames of burned-out Chevrolets

    They scream your name at night in the street
    Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
    And in the lonely cool before dawn
    You hear their engines roaring on
    When you get to the porch they're gone
    On the wind

     

    Western Stars has two contenders:

    CWH:

    Fingernail moon in a twilight sky
    Ridin' high grass of the switchback
    I shout your name into the canyon
    The echo throws it back

    MM

    She was boarded up and gone like an old summer song
    Nothing but an empty shell
    I pulled in and stopped into my old spot

    I pulled a bottle of Jack out of a paper bag
    Poured one for me and one for you as well
    Then it was one more shot poured out onto the parking lot
    To the Moonlight Motel

  3. Thunder Road (any version) because this verse is the best lyric Bruce has written to date:

    There were ghosts in the eyes
    Of all the boys you sent away
    They haunt this dusty beach road
    In the skeleton frames of burned-out Chevrolets

    They scream your name at night in the street
    Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
    And in the lonely cool before dawn
    You hear their engines roaring on
    When you get to the porch they're gone
    On the wind
