  1. If they come out with a limited Springsteen Edition Jeep with his voiced used for the navigation system, I would consider buying it.
  2. What do you think he was writing on that piece of paper? And why was he lighting that candle? We may never know. For some reason, I feel the need to go to my local Jeep dealer tomorrow though.
  3. I'm hoping for 7 Nights To Rock, Stand On It, Johnny 99, and Reno.
  4. I would have to say Danny. His organ playing is so distinctive, and crucial to the classic E Street sound. It was really noticeable on songs off the new album where they were attempting to replicate that sound, but the style of organ play didn't quite match, and the organ didn't really stand out. Songs like Jackson Cage, Hungry Heart, Rosalita, Backstreets wouldn't have been what they are without his playing. It's like he was the magic dust sprinkled into all those songs.
  5. Santa Ana Lovers on the Cold Because the Night Meet Me in the City This Hard Land What album was Leavin Train written for? The guitar and vocals on that song are some of his best I have heard from the studio.
  6. Nashville to NYC would be a terrible drive. It would take all day. Bad weather this weekend too. Personally, I hope they play All Alone for Christmas with a special appearance by Darlene Love! Realistically, I could see them playing Ghosts, an E Street classic such as 10th Avenue, and Santa Clause.
  7. The album is beautiful with the exception of Rainmaker. I wish he had included an updated version of Homestead instead. It makes a similar political statement with better lyrics, story telling, and melody. I doubt I will ever listen to Rainmaker again after today. But overall, it is a great release. The opener is beautiful. I love the 3 songs from 73 as well as track 5, 6, and 7.
  8. Not sure if anyone has mentioned this yet, but the guitar riff after "I hear the sound of your guitar" is pretty similar to the main riff in Tom Petty's classic Free Fallin. It's just a variation on D chord I believe.
  9. I'm gonna have to go with: 1) Promised Land 2) Because the Night 3) Thunder Road 4) Racing in the Streets 5) Drive All Night 5) Save My Love 6) Open All Night 7) Downbound Train 8) Loose Ends 9) Kingdom of Days 10) Western Stars
  10. I like it on first listen. It gives me Lucky Day vibes from WOAD. I interpret the letter in the song to be a symbol for his career, which he sent to his listeners.
  11. 1984 by Van Halen is very radio friendly. It is the last album with frontman David Lee Roth before Sammy Hagar took over and also features multiple synthesizer songs including Jump and I'll Wait.
  12. What about You Mean So Much to Me left off Greetings or WIESS... it could have been a hit single in my opinion.
  13. Actually he did sit atop Billy Joel's piano on 7/18/18 at MSG while they sang 10th Avenue. I dont know if that counts or not because he never came to a standing position...
  14. I dont see how show wrestling is the opposite of Bruce. I mean each wrestler creates their own personna that they want to portray to the audience like Bruce. Bruce has described his shows as a sort of magic trick. The same could be said for pro wrestling when a small, diminutive wrestler defeats a much larger opponent but makes it look believable.
  15. My favorite "outro" of any song I've ever heard. With Bruce's tele taking the melody and then C's sax kicks in for the final punch.
  16. Racing in the Streets would almost have to be influenced by a movie since he has admitted to having no experience doing so first hand...
  17. I heard somewhere on here Harry's Place was inspired by and written for The Sopranos.
  18. I believe he wrote a song about making a TV Movie, but I don't know who the star of that movie would be...
