Didn’t know Streets of Philadelphia made no.2 in the UK singles charts. I thought Dancing in the Dark was Bruce’s highest ranked UK single at No. 4. 

I found that surprising as well, but I've just been reading up about it and it's true!

Omg.

:lol:I bet even Bruce can't get it all correct.

Well for starters he's wrong about Slane Castle being his first ever stadium show.  That was 2 months earlier here in Brisbane, at QEII Stadium.  45000 people.   I'm kind of pissed that he forgot about us.

Then again, he also thinks it's "sways", so I shouldn't take it too personally..the old boy is clearly losing it.

Which of Springsteen’s most regularly performed songs is the opening track of the album Darkness On The Edge Of Town?

 Easy

In 2021 an 8 part podcast was release entitled Renegades comprised conversations between Springsteen and which American politician?

  Easy

What was the make of Springsteen’s first electric guitar, made in Japan bought for $69

  My knowledge of guitars is so poor that I even managed to mis-type the answer above

In May 1972 Springsteen was auditioned by the talent scout and record producer John Hammond who signed him shortly afterwards to which American label?

  Straightforward enough

Springsteen and the saxophonist Clarence Clemons who were friends and fellow musicians for 40 years first played together in September 1971 at which bar in Asbury Park?

  Answered the first Asbury Park club that came into my head, but it was the wrong one

Two musicians are credited with cameo appearances on the 1973 album WIESS, one was saxophonist Al Tellone, who is the other on congas and percussion?

  I knew this due to his guest appearance at the 2009 MSG album show

Springsteen wrote his classic album BTR while living in a rented cottage with the strange address of 7 1/2 West End Court in which city in New Jersey?

  Couldn't recall the answer before it was given, even though I should have been able to

In October 2017 Springsteen began a New York concert residency called Springsteen On Broadway which ran for more than 230 performances at which theatre on West 48th Street?

  This had dropped down the pecking order of facts in my brain and was struggling to make it to the top before the contestant gave the answer

In Springsteen’s live performances he often inserts a few lines of the classic soul hit It Takes Two into which of his own songs?

  Easy, so very surprising that contestant didn't know

According to Springsteen his first stadium show ever was on 1 June 1985 in Ireland at which rural venue in County Meath?

  Not a problem

hat was the B Side of Springsteen’s multi award winning single The Streets Of Philadelphia which reached No 2 in the UK chart in 1994?

  Didn't have a Scoobie

The 2009 Hard Rock Calling concert in Hyde Park included a guest appearance by Brian Fallon of the band The Gaslight Anthem on which song?

  I would have got this right I'm sure, but contestant answered before I could even start to think

Which filmmaker directed the 1996 documentary Blood Brothers based on the studio reunion the previous year of the E Street Band at The Hit Factory, NYC?

  No idea, although I was pretty sure it predated Thom Zimny
