  1. American Land is very similar to Sally Maclennane by The Pogues... Bruce has been record raving about Shane's songwriting...
  2. This never gets a lot of love in covers discussion, but it is definitely one of my favourites...
  3. Born to Run will always sound better on record, until Bruce manages to get a glockenspiel on stage....
  4. Clue No. 1 - it's on the same album as LITF...
  5. Now honey I don't wanna clip your wings But a time comes when two people should think of these things Having a home and a family Facing up to their responsibilities They say in the end true love prevails But in the end true love can't be some fairytale To say I'll make your dreams come true would be wrong But maybe darling I could help them along Ohhh, my daddy said right before he died That true true love was just a lie He went to his grave a broken heart An unfulfilled life girl makes a man hard Oh darling, there's something happy and there's something sad 'Bout wanting somebody oh so bad I wear my love darling without shame I'd be proud if you would wear my name I Wanna Marry You to most is a throwaway song just before The River on the album. But listening to one of the 2016 concerts revently, I really concentrated on the lyrics and they are just perfect.....
  6. Bruce's contribution to Live Aid was the stage set at Wembley. He had just finished his concerts there and left all the stage, lighting and speakers to be used for free, as far as I remember. In Geldofs book, he spent a long time trying to persuade Bruce, and Bruce later admitted he wished he'd just turned with his guitar and played something..
  7. I assumed he was a Pogues fan, when I first heard American Land. It was obviously influenced by this....
  8. If I should Fall behind... I'll get ma coat.
  9. In no particular order and sticking to one song per artist... BS. Incident on 57th St. Simple Minds. Waterfront Mighty Wah. The Story of the Blues Elvis. American Trilogy Proclaimers. Sunshine on Leith Dave Matthew's. Crush Deacon Blue. Dignity S Express Theme from S Express Specials Aka Free Nelson Mandela Louis Armstrong. Wendy Saints...
  10. I quite enjoyed that...didnt know much about her, but always like hearing other people's Bruce fandom...
  11. Do you have a fascination with cathedrals??
  12. If this is released on his official channel, might this be an Archive Release soon??
  13. Voted for BTR, but the back cover of WIESS with the band in the street is my all time favourite band photo ever...
  14. We're trudging through the dark in a world gone wrong..
