  1. After all we have endured in all our different countries over the past 18 months - what a great video, a breath of fresh air and actually giving a bit of hope and positivity to a song I had grown to really dislike! Love the vid, I hope Bruce sees it too - we all need that sunny day.❤
  2. You might be onto something here - Spurs have an NFL pitch they can slide out on top of the grass football pitch. It is part of the long term design of teh place to allow for NFL and possibly gigs too. This is one stadium in England that actually could host a Bruce gig without damaging the playing surface - I just hope the acoustics and sound are better than Wembley!
  3. Totally- across the whole world, this song now has a new and more deep a meaning. I bet he has been thinking of this for weeks and crossed off so many songs before settling on one that just makes everyone sit up and notice once again.
  4. What a spell binding and inspired choice of song for today. Beautiful.
  5. Thanks Oli! What a night in Milan and what a great our that was - would love to be back to days like these once again
  6. Thanks for the post Daisey, always good to get a nudge and be reminded of just how good this album really is. Having been fortunate to take my kids to their very first gig on this tour the album holds some amazing memories. The songs stand the test of time and I still find that Rocky Ground, Jack of all Trades and This Depression surprise me each time I return to the album. We take care of our own and Wrecking Ball were live favourites but I still prefer the LINYC version of Land of Hope and Dreams as it always takes on a huge life of it's own when played live. Might not be high on everyone else's list but it is an album that still ranks highly and needs a revisit every now and again as a reminder of how good it is.
  7. Second time in a week I have been introduced to Jack Antonoff. Amazing talent and what is good enough for Taylor Swift then great to see Bruce support a fellow New Jersey singer/ songwriter/ producer. Love this song.
  8. Simply beautiful, appreciate you posting the Bruce songs to avoid trawling through the whole show. Long Walk Home keeps coming back to us - a big part of Hilary Clinton's election campaign 4 years ago and so much more resounding now. Yet released 13 years ago with so many other non- political; meanings for so many. A wonderful song that needs greater respect and love.
  9. That was one emotional watch. To see the themes of each song play out in front of your eyes was one thing, to add the narrative just pushed it over the limit. Beautifully filmed and some rather dark overtones throughout which JL showed in the end and George Thiess does throughout. Simply beautiful to watch a band of blood brothers make such a remarkable album.
  10. The into to to Don't Give up - in The UK and just found a way of listening to this show online, those words mean as much from this side of The Atlantic as they do from Bruce. Labor Day in 2020 - Don't Give up is such an amazing sentiment.
  11. Never tire of listening to this - still my go to version of Racing, just makes you wonder where did those 11 years go! Never to be forgotten performance and the last time I saw Clarence.
  12. Love Maria McKee and I'm just glad I read through all the comments, before I posted. Awful is possibly the most polite description of someone who I thought could nail those high notes and make it her own. When I saw the thread title I was thinking we were onto something - alas not - no offence to those who try but why piss about with something that has taken an age to get to being recorded in the first place and is deemed as perfection on release. Lesson to nearly all - not worth covering a Bruce song
  13. The songs that followed all had the same sentiment and the whole show became his statement. Typically Bruce! From the heart and as he has always seen it.
  14. Would never had guessed that one. Of all the songs that U2 and Bono have ever written, they needed a bit more of a thank you to Bruce, for the inspiration than choosing that Having said that - writing to the artist or family to explain his choice sounds like something that would fill my next week of lockdown in the UK. Leaving aside the shite song choices by Bono , there are some tunes on his list that are worth a revisit - Echo and the Bunnymen , This Mortal Coil, Joy Division, New Order, Taking Heads, Arcade Fire and a few more. Shame he spoilt it by adding in the gobshite stuff - to get everyone to react! Otherwise nobody would have noticed he was 60
  15. I have posted this before and in order to remain consistent will concur with the OP - Hyde Park is just the most incredible version of Racing - but is enhanced by the visuals looking back. I was there , The Clarence, the mood of the crowd and the time of day just made it at the time. On the DVD the look on Nils face as the complete wall of sound encapsulated the band sums the whole song up - no matter where you hear it, it has the ability to just strike a chord in every single part of your body. My 15 year old son is doing some Instagram challenge that involves nominating a song for every day of the month. Greatest song he has ever heard? … Racing in the Street by Bruce Springsteen . Proud Dad moment!
