  1. I'm a bit late to the party but... When I think of the word masterpiece (the song as a whole, not just single lines) these are the first songs that come to mind: The Price You Pay Independence Day The Ghost of Tom Joad IMO they're some of the greatest (if not the greatest) songs written by anyone ever. These are some of the songs that come very, very close to the ones listed above (so close that they could practically be included in the masterpiece category): The Hitter Walk Like a Man Devils & Dust The Promise If I Should Fall Behind Racing in the Street
  2. I discovered this one just the other day (how come I had never heard it before?!). I like it quite a bit!
  3. Yup. It's just realism, a taste of real life... And that's pretty much how I feel about myself, I mean I'm not a beauty but hey I'm alright...
  4. My first thought when I saw the OP... Cool tattoo! I'd never get one myself (any tattoo, that is), but I'm a bit tempted to have my arm signed the next time I get the chance...
  5. I couldn't agree more! For me, things such as gender and ethnicity are irrelevant in Bruce's music 'cause that's not what his songs are ultimately about.
  6. I was there (as were a bunch of other Finns), too! I remember the heat like it was yesterday… The pre-show was a great surprise and totally unexpected indeed! Good times...
  7. Yes! I've never had a problem with Bruce's vocals in this song. I love his voice raw. Well, I love his voice soft, too, and certainly don't mind the howling etc., either.
  8. I think I've only been asked this question once and that was many years ago. The way the question was worded made it clear to me the person asking it found Bruce pitiful because of his "old" age and couldn't understand how come I liked "such an old man". I was too baffled by her immature attitude to come up with a kick ass reply of any kind (which I should've done). Exactly! This is the main reason Bruce is the only artist important to me on a personal level. I love the themes, depth and the maturity of his "serious" songs and the fact that you can shake your booty to his lighter, fun songs and always discover new meanings and nuances in his music. Bruce's qualities as a live performer, his charisma, his stage presence, his voice etc. don't do harm, either. I've never tried to convert a non-believer and never will. If they don't get it, then they just don't get it and that's not my problem.
  9. Yes! That's why I think the song fits the album perfectly. However, it's one of my least favourite songs on the album. It's not a bad song but the sound isn't my cup of tea: it's too Seegerish to me. Could be fun to hear it live, though.
  10. I had completely forgotten I've had From Small Things once so I had to change my list a little bit... 1. Tunnel of Love (Gothenburg 2016) 2. Pink Cadillac (Turku 2013) 3. Light of Day (Helsinki 2012) 4. Brilliant Disguise (Turku 2013) 5. From Small Things (Big Things One Day Come) (Turku 2013)
  11. A great topic! Here are some of my very favourites off top of my head. There are others but since we were only supposed to pick five... I never thought I'd get to hear any of these songs live and went mental when they were actually played at a show I was attending. 1. Tunnel of Love (Gothenburg 2016) 2. Pink Cadillac (Turku 2013) 3. Light of Day (Helsinki 2012) 4. Brilliant Disguise (Turku 2013) 5. Ain't Good Enough for You (Turku 2013)
  12. The Ties That Bind is a great song indeed! It's definitely one of my favourites.
