Something like this: 1. Independence day 2. The River 3. Thunder road 4. Tougher than the rest (Chimes of freedom live version) 5. Incident on 57th street 6. I wish I were blind 7. My

I lie awake in the middle of the night makin' a list of songs that I couldn't possibly rank.

Not sure I can do a top 10. Top 20, sure thing. I'll try.

Thunder Road, New York City Serenade, Wrecking Ball, Brilliant Disguise, Loose Ends, Youngstown, Atlantic City, Lost in the Flood, Land of Hope and Dreams, American Skin (41 Shots).

This is missing a few that really should be there but oh well.

Absolutely impossible to do it properly to get it under 100 

I’m right there with ya!  My ‘top 10’ is a subject heading/grouping, not a literal number :D

Just realized, I missed out Thunder Road. I think sometimes, how often a song is played live, influences my choices.

If Thunder Road hadn't been played live for nearly 30 years, as was the case with The Price You Pay, I'd probably appreciate it more.

All of these songs have moved me to tears. Some of them more than once.

Nice to see I wish I Were Blind in there. One of my favourites too. Especially like the MTV Unplugged version, the guitar solo at the end by Bruce is really moving. He may not have the technical brilliance of many guitarists, but he has so much feeling in his playing, and this is a great example.

Racing in the Street (honourable mention to the Promise '78 version, too)

Something in the Night

Jungleland

The Ghost of Tom Joad

Incident on 57th Street

Highway Patrolman

Valentine's Day

Rocky Ground

Kingdom of Days

Lost in the Flood

These aren't necessarily in order, but I think this is a good stab at what my top 10 would be (at the minute..!)

Shocked that BITUSA isn't represented as it's probably one of my favourite albums, too

So true for me, which is probably why I missed out that and BTR, as well as anything from BITUSA

Seeing your name come up also made me realise that Maria's Bed is definitely pushing for a place in the top 10 - I know it isn't always a favourite around here, but it never fails to make me smile, that's for sure!

Maria's Bed is a heck of a jam, that's for sure.
