Hello! Let’s dive straight in to another one shall we?
Girls Aloud take their place between The Strokes and Britney (her second split from Justin)
|Bob Marley & The Wailers
|The Rolling Stones
So let’s have a look at The Boss, shall we?
Bruce Springsteen, HGATR?
That Girls Aloud score has really annoyed me
shit might need to call out of work for this one.
Awful music, awful posey ‘i’m a working class plummer’ schtick, and my step-dad is obsessed with him and he’s a cunt so I’m giving Bruce a big fat ONE
Also, the lyrics to ‘I’m on Fire’ are fucking gross
Springsteen has never really had much of an impact on me. His songs are all right but eh, they’re just kinda there. 3/5

Solid 5/5. Imagine writing a song like My Love Will Not Let You Down and not even releasing it. Christ.
Picked Nebraska as my favourite album but I don’t think it has the best song quality throughout. Just love the general tone and the storytelling
you can absolutely keep it
Not a Springsteen fan but I like that he yells at Republicans for using his music without permission.
He’s the Boss.
Just a huge catalogue of atmospheric, anthemic, heartbreaking songs, a consumate storyteller, with a Great Ear for a Tune. Also seems like a genuinely nice person.
Born to Run was my wife and I’s first dance at our wedding.
And I’m not even that into him, I haven’t explored a lot of his albums.
if you don’t like him, you have no taste in music.
Easiest 5 so far for me tbh. Never got him til I was about 30 but since then it just clicked and I’ve delved in deep. Born To Run is one of the only records I find absolutely flawless from start to finish. Oh and Jungleland is probably the best song ever written.
“1, 2, 3, 4, THE HIGHWAY’S JAMMED…”
High point of the medium.
nebraska and darkness on the edge of town are great, i’ve got tom joad too and that’s alright. not felt that compelled to listen to anything else
seems like a good egg
Major Springsteen fan 5/5. Being from the Northeastern part of the US hard not to be. One of the greatest live performers I have ever seen. Marathon concerts every time, plays with so much energy its remarkable. Shows normally last 3-3.5 hours. the E Street Band is such a well oiled machine. ‘Born to Run’ is sheer brilliance.
