I think you have some fair points there, though I'm not familiar with Springsteen, he seems according to his praise and little music I've heard, to have keen observation skills for the exterior, especially pertaining to social life and happenings. Neil usually tends to draw on introspection, at least in his most famous/acclaimed songs; mainly, his more socially charged songs are the actual protests. I guess maybe I'm geared more towards abstraction and poetic internalization though.

That exists with Bruce, its just beneath the story line. Its the same with, for example, Great Gatsby. Ostensibly its about a rich guy who didn't get to bang his dream girl.

But it isn't.

Springsteen has Nebraska which is one of my favorite songs. Other than that I don't think I can name 20 other songs by Springsteen that I like. On the other hand, pretty much every song I've heard by Neil Young I've loved. I also really enjoy his guitar and harmonica playing, so I'm going with him.

I own Born To Run, Born In The USA, Greatest Hits, and Nebraska. I've also checked out The Seeger Sessions, The Rising, and Darkness On The Edge of Town from my local library. I liked some songs off each of these albums, but a lot of the songs I couldn't stand mainly because of the music. Springsteen and Young are just about equals when it comes to lyrics, but I prefer Youngs music.

I have a 59 song playlist for Bruce Springsteen. My playlist for Neil young is not even half that. There's no doubt in my mind, Bruce is my favorite. Got all his albums, including tracks and the full set of promise.

Born in the USA (the born in the usa album/E street version) is one of my favorite songs to listen to in my car, next to Back in Black and Sweet Home Alabama.

Oh no, I thought it was rad too. Jans did get me on the Suicide for Springsteen though, that's pretty righteous too.
