Top Ten Bruce Springsteen Songs


The Contenders: Page 3

41 This Hard Land

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.

42 Better Days

Great rhythm fun song

43 New York City Serenade

Walk tall... Or better don't walk at all. Great song. Diamond Jackie is what I named my cat cause of this song.

Surprising melody with a lot of style variations.. Very beatiful the first passage with the piano..

44 The Ghost of Tom Joad

HOW IS THIS NOT IN THE TOP 10?!?!? 1 Most underrated song about the falsehood of the American dream ever made

One of the most beautiful songs with amazing lyrics.

Should be muuch higher...! Great song, great lyrics, great music!

What 114?

45 Spirit In the Night

Amazing song - classic Bruce!

46 Cadillac Ranch

A fun song about dating, racing, and the famous Cadillac Ranch on Route 66. - rogertfeeback

47 I Wanna Marry You
48 Lost in the Flood

I remember the first time I heard this song, the lyrics just left such a huge impression...the most under-rated Bruce song that there is

If Dylan wrote this, it would be considered one of the greatest ever.

49 Bobby Jean

One of the best songs written about a lost love you�'d wish to meet again. Not as heartbreaking as "Martha" by Tom Waits but certainly the same leauge.

50 American Land
51 You're Missing

Not huge in terms of music or lyrics... but probably the Boss's most striking song of all.

Heard it today in the movie "The Crossing Guard"...sounded pretty cool to me.Wasn't the original version but way better than original..Jack Nicholson walking through the crowded pavement smoking cig and this song playing in the background made it super awesome 👌

52 Pink Cadillac
53 Tougher Than the Rest

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? 53? COME ON GUYS... this can't be true... great song.. One of my all time favorite songs

great song

57 Nebraska

The lead track off the album of the same name. Yes, I know that is already enough for someone to want to listen to it, but fortunately, it is also such a nice song.

58 Wrecking Ball

One of the best songs of Bruce, so strong and powerful simply great

Only just behind born to run

59 Murder Incorporated

This song flat-out rocks.
