Random Thoughts + Discussion: Springsteen edition


Recommended Posts

I tried making this thread on Saturday but with the forum being broke it messed up and I couldn't be bothered to repost at the time, so let's see how this genuine quarter to 3 post goes. 

Why did Bruce not mix up the set list for the second full album River show in LA last March? Why didn't he play the solo piano Independence Day? Rockabilly You Can Look? The Live in NYC River? The 'daddy' version of Point Blank? Alt. Stolen Car? Added verse of The Price You Pay etc.?

Also, the Live in NYC CD version of Tenth Ave. has differences to the DVD, I've always thought it was just an edit job, but now I'm thinking they're different versions completely from different MSG shows. What's the deal there, Greasy Lake? 

Discuss and post other random Springsteen related thoughts.

P, your feelings are your feelings, but honestly, I’m not exactly sure why his age vs your age matters as to how you feel about his music.   Also, loving Bruce should have zero to do with listeni

On Wednesday I was driving my two great nephews (aged 8 and 10) to the cinema. Naturally, I had been playing Bruce on the way to pick them up, so when they got in I said, you don’t have to listen to B

A random intermittent thought that I've had on the previous three tours(including HH tour) is why does he love playing Darlington County and Working on the Highway so much?!Okay they're not played as

Sorry, Paolo but if I put down my thoughts of Bruce I think I would be banned from here but:D really Bruce is the greatest Rock singer that is and he makes me very happy whenever I hear or see him.

That's interesting about Tenth Ave from LINYC. I've never analysed the CD v DVD closely enough to know if they are actually different performances.... I always just assumed the CD was an edit of the same DVD performance

What inspired Bruce to add a guitar intro to the live Prove It All Night  especially one that changed from night to night?

Neil Young's live free form soloing on Like A Hurricane during 76-77?

I have often thought why does  Bruce shortchange himself he has such a great deal of fantastic songs under his belt and yet we only hear a limited amount live and I have said before you can only feel a song by hearing it performed live.

Tenth Avenue on Live in NYC Cd is the versions from 29.6.2000 and 1.7.2000 mixed up in 3: first part and last part from 1.7.2000 and middle of the song from 29.6.2000 (OR first and last part from 29.6.2000 and middle from 1.7.2000).

I can only imagine he likes those two songs rather better than most of us do! 

I would actually be very interested in hearing how he constructs a set list. This would, for me, be a more interesting interview than trotting out all the usual stuff, e.g. in the Tom Hanks interview, enjoyable as that was, I didn't learn anything new.

I guess so!I always like to think he draws up the setlists like 30/60 minutes before each concert,just to keep the ESB on their toes!

Yeah I'd agree - I enjoy Working on the Highway alot more than Darlington County

He could play something from Tunnel Of Love or Magic there instead - there's always more than enough of Born in the USA

Darlington County and Working on the Highway were on BITUSA, his most popular album to the casual fan, and are upbeat and that gets the crowd on their feet and let's them have a good time.

Remember, not everyone is listening to every single show and getting sick of them being played every other show,

Interesting.  What about the DVD version?

Also, I've noticed on E Street Radio, they've been playing Blood Brothers from 7/1/2000.  The tag says it's from LINYC.  Usually it says the date if it's not officially released.  I remember a clip being in the DVD during the Costas interview, but don't recall it being officially released.

thats my problem with the book im still only half way through and am struggling with it, and have learnt virtually nothing new at all, maybe i have read to many bruce books i dont know, but trotting out the usual stuff sums it up pretty well for me, so far.

I didn't care much for the new facts the book brought us, I was drawn by the way he reflects on his life and himself. Part show, part sobering. The level of depression he deals with was probably the most revealing but the way he speaks about it even more moving. To me, the human aspect is the draw.

Why do I, a heterosexual man, find Bruce Springsteen so damned handsome?

 

Simple because he is!:P but at the end of the day, it`s who we are inside that counts

I discovered now this is not exactly right, as Tenth Avenue was not split in 3 but in 2 parts. The first part is from 1.7.2000 and the second part is from 29.6.2000.

The article which is my source says all other songs on the Live in NYC cd are from 1.7.2000, except four songs which are from 29.6.2000: Don't Look Back and Jungleland (which both were not played at 1.7.2000), Badlands and Youngstown.

But I don't find other handsome men to be handsome. George Clooney? Pass. Sean Connery? Meh. Pierce Brosnan, Will Smith, Howard Stern? Nope.

Just Bruce Springsteen. The handsome devil.
