BCB favourite tracks - Bruce Springsteen RESULTS!!

Postby Positive Passion » 03 Oct 2021, 11:00

So my wife just commented that Thunder Road was Bruce's best song so I thought we would have a check.

We have done a few of these before, usually with lists of 20 favourite tracks, and we allocate 24 points to a number 1 and 5 points to a number 20. I appreciate people may not know that many Springsteen songs, so let's say PM me with your favourite 10 Springsteen tracks IN ORDER and I will calculate the numbers to work out BCB's fave Springsteen. If you want to send 20 that would be great. I also appreciate people may not be interested in Bruce, but let's see if we can get more entries than the Kylie poll.

I only like "Sandy" and only as performed by Hollies.

Overall it is probably more fun if you pm lists rather than posting here, because then there is more of a sense of revelation when the results come out - but it is not a big deal.

Not a huge fan (though I like the first four a lot). But I did manage to come up with 20. Just PM'd.

I only know a few of his albums, but I'll give it a shot:

Because the Night
Born to Run
Independence Day
Blinded by the Light
Rosalita
4th of July Ashbury Park (Sandy)
Fire
Point Blank
Hungry Heart
Thunder Road
It's hard to be a Saint in the City
Jungleland
The Promised Land
Spirits in the Night
Glory Days
Born in the USA
Nebraska
Cadillac Ranch
One Step Up

Really struggled after Jungleland.

A bit like in the US election, the earliest returns had good showings for songs like Inceident, but a couple of boxes under the desk were full of votes for more widely popular tracks.
