My most favorite Bruce song, ever! It pertains to society, an individual love, and self-actualization. Thank you, Bruce, so much for writing this beautiful song.
Why is this song so down on the list? I can't believe that... this songs is so lovely, great, cute, so beautifully written... it just does not stop being playing in my head...V1 Comment
Brilliant song. I haven't been a Bruce fan (mainly due to the fact that I haven't been very familiar with his music-- I'm more of a punk rock gal) but I ADORE this song & make everyone listen to it.
What!? I was expecting to come on this and see I'm going' down at least in the top ten and I see it at 112! - wolphert
Whenever I think about Bruce Springsteen, I think about the indomitable force of music to make our spirits rise. The Rising surely is one of his bests.
One of his 5 best songs without any doubt. I wonder why it's ranked 20th...
Springsteen touched our hearts with this song. It should be in the top 10, without a doubt
Inspirational song! Very powerful...V7 Comments
The melody is beautiful and all the warm references to the small towns in its lyrics just make it an enjoyable peice of music. Magic (2007) was a great album too!
A nice peice of art. It's a beautiful song and Springsteen sounds great in it. It is one of Bruce's most artistic works..V1 Comment
MASTERPIECE. " Smokestacks reaching like the arm's of God, into a beautiful sky of soot and clay".
"Youngstown" is a great song. One of my favorites with The Boss. It�'s sad in some way, but I can�'t explain it. Maybe you know what I mean. Why is it placed so low on this list?V1 Comment
Love this song. Too bad it is recorded so poor.
One of the best song I ever heart
Simply beautiful with a fantastic guitar riff. Excellent sound; almost a cry for a new chance. Last verse gets me every time. The underdog trying in desperation to make something of himself for his girl. Fine tune.
No. 9? Seriously? This is crazy man. Beautiful lyrics, beautiful voice. Amazing!
Should be at the top ten and not at 39..
The most beautiful song and lyrics by Bruce:) Absolutely love it.
There is an incredible live version of this song, with full E-Street band, and Max and Roy in full swing, on the B-side of the War Maxi-Single. Unfortunately I was never able to get hold of a clean digital version (except the one I made myself in 1997 with a home-built 8 bit digitizer).
Great song, and the new wall-of-sound treatment of this song makes it even better.
Proves Bruce's enormous talent in the early stages of his carreer and is my absolute nr. 1. This song carries the eccentricity of his pre-BTR work, it's poetic, highly original and it goes on forever. Love it deeply.V1 Comment
Top 10 for moi. Dave
Probably his most underrated song ever. To me, his 2nd after "The River".
Agree. This might be # 33 on a list of best songs ever written and is definitely his best song.
So underrated as a great Springsteen song. My favorite along with I Wish I Were Blind.
What! Are you sure this is number 33 what is wrong with the people... Best song everV5 Comments
Why do I have to scroll so far down to find this one, come on not No. 50, it's Top 5 easily like come on people
The most particular song ever compsed: a crescendo of sound until reaching the peak of the extasy of love for a woman. Incredibile and unique. No song like this has ever got the same emotion!
Seriously?! Cover me is No. 56?!V1 Comment
As I write this is 41. It is, in my opinion, the best Springsteen song ever. Yeah, got to get it up the list. Funny though because the version most people would have heard would be from one of his Greatest Hits compilations (in the UK at least) but the killer version is the one from Tracks.
So my favourite three songs by Bruce (this, Born in the USA and Racing in the Street) are alternative versions of their album versions. And that sums him up. What a bloke.
