Ok, so where do I start? Do I pick one from each of his ten best albums, or do I divide his career into 10 year periods and pick equally from every period? Or do I simply let my emotions decide, and pick what feels right today? That’s what I ‘ll do, like I allways do, I go with what feels right at this particular moment.
Springsteen is a fantastic songwriter and a formidable performer, for me he is easily in the top 3 both as a singer/songwriter and as a performing artist.
To pick 10 songs from the hundreds he has written is not easy, but here we go.
1.) Racing in the Streets
2.) The Promise
3.) The River
4.) Thunder Road
5) Adam Raised a Cain
6.) Tougher Than The Rest
8.) Lost In The Flood
9.) Atlantic City
10.) The Ghost of Tom Joad
My main post on The Ghost of Tom Joad
That’s my list as of today. There are many good songs that didn’t make the list today, but maybe (or most certainly) the list will be different tomorrow. There are so many good songs to choose from, and to just pick 10 songs is torture.
