Favourite Track By... Volume 59

In no particular order...

The rising
Darkness on the edge of town
The ghost of Tom Joad
Glory days
Streets of Philadelphia
Human touch
Living proof
Lonesome day

Just for starters; I could be here all day...

Factory - from Darkness on the Edge of Town. Only because it has personal overtones that mean so much to me. A man having to get up every morning and "Walk through them factory gates in the rain", to feed his family - just as my dad did all his working life. Not a raucous rocker but a sad, mournful and hard ballad.

Saw him three times from the late 70's through the 80's. The first, at Manchester Apollo, still possibly the best concert I've ever been to.

Born to Run, Thunder Road, I'm on Fire … there's so many tracks I love and still listen to all the time.

Think I preferred the Uriah Heep thread

Like a few of his songs but not him. Much prefer the song written about him when he first appeared on the music scene.

Said before that I’ve never got on with Springsteen. I don’t think he’s bad, far from it, he’s clearly good at what he does and I see why so many people like him. His stuff has just never done anything for me.

This is me too. I've tried but I can't get into him - full of respect for him and his fans but I can't listen to a whole album.

Similar view- never really got him, but don't hate him. Think Born to Run is a great song though.
