live 75-85 (i know, i know: A box set, but every note is gold)
human touch/lucky town (love them both in equal measure)
tunnel of love

i have to mention born in the usa, as it was the first springsteen album i ever bought, but really it's quite commercial and kind of his "eliminator", when you look at it: Everyone was listening to it, just because it was cool.

d&d?

It is also a shame Clarence is gone and I believe Roy Bittan is too. He passed first.

Oh I had (and still have) it on vinyl. Big cardboard box, open it and inside are the albums each in individual dust sleeves. Biggest box set I ever got, and one of the few I ever played all the way through. Total magic.

I have always found myself liking Bruce Springsteen. He is someone who has always managed to be real whether you like or not. He is a true man. That is why I respect him big time.

Good analogy, but I wasn't old enough then to be listening to Bruce. I got into it later, and it is by far my favorite Springstreen album. However, I like "Tunnel of Love" (the song) and probably "Atlantic City" better than anything on Born in the USA. When one goes commercial, often some depth is sacrificed for breadth. I'm not a big fan of any Springsteen song after 1992 or so.

So I heard Born in the U.S.A. from start to finish for the first time the other day and dayum, that album is tight.

I was always reluctant to listen to it because the title and album cover made me think it's some nationalistic bullshit but apparently Springsteen isn't about that at all.

And anyway, I'm a whore for catchy tunes and that album is chalk full of them.

Actually, Springsteen is somewhat socially liberal and generally writes songs in that vein. Born in the USA, in fact, is about the horror that was experienced by a soldier in Vietnam. The Boss was later none too happy when Reagan used it as a political campaign theme song without even listening to the lyrics.

I'm just a whore, but there's a few tunes by Bruce and the boys I've learned to appreciate. I went through the entire Boss phase as a hater when BITUSA came out in the 80's since that was a requirement for being a Metalhead. After shedding those mental bonds of oppression the message he was conveying became a bit clearer and I came to appreciate the talent involved. His radio saturated stuff is a bit annoying but these few are on a couple of my playlists:

This one hits me hard, since I had a musician friend pass away at the beginning of the year. The lyrics mirror exactly what I've felt and the accompaniment is solid with the ebb and flow of the tune:

Rosalita's another one I won't turn off when it comes over the airwaves.
