Top Ten Bruce Springsteen Songs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 I Wish I Were Blind

A really amazing song by the best artist ever to exist. One of his best songs by far and should be in the top ten, but I don't find it on the list. It should be placed on here for everyone to vote for.

The live version from " plugged " is much better!

62 Mary's Place

Amazing song, the saxophone in this song just gives you goosebumps. It is one of the best songs the E street Band can perform and it really should be in the top 20!

I love the line 7 picture's of Buddha

63 Thundercrack
64 Point Blank

Probably one of his most under-rated songs. Powerful, desperate, heartbreaking. It's a bad day when I need this song, but it's there to comfort me.

Great Hymn (From the album "The River")

65 Lucky Town

I love Bruce, and for the most part I can agree with most of the spots of songs on this list, but how is Luck Town outside the top 20? I know all of his songs and can say with confidence that Lucky Town is better than Thundercrack, although I love Tracks, and Human Touch. Other songs should be moved up, too, including The Rising and Prove It All Night, and Lost in the Flood. In my opinion, Lost in the Flood should by top ten.

Again, the live version from " plugged " is awesome!

66 One Step Up

If James Taylor wrote this, people would be going crazy for it.

45?! Best balad ever!

67 American Skin

Haunting music, tragic story, beautifully of the best

68 No Surrender

It's just so beautiful, full of raw emotion. It makes me cry. I considered "the river" my favourite song of all time for years, till I heard this one. Now it might as well be a tie...

In my opinion this should be in the top 10, a moving classic! 'Like soldiers on a winters night with a vow to defend, no retreat baby no surrender.'

It's a song about freedom, love, and rebellion. It's the ultimate song for anyone young or anyone trying to break away.

Surely has to be one of his better track "No retreat, no surrender"

69 Into the Fire

A tribute to the 9/11 lives that were sacrificed trying to save others. - rogertfeeback

70 Out in the Street

Alright, maybe some people aren't crazy about the lyrics in this one, but come on. This is classic Bruce. Seriously, "Out In the Street" should be top 30. If you haven't heard this one and you're lonely some Friday night, put this on and crank it. He's still waiting for you, patiently, "Out In the Street".

Definitely a high point of his live concerts; big time audience participation.

71 Land of Hope and Dreams

Just the fact that this song is based on a legendary song as People Get Ready makes it top 10 material - BeeBlue

Masterpiece. Nobody writes stuff like this.

Hope that everyone will catch that train...

72 Jersey Girl

Great cover of a Tom Waits classic - live this is a showstopper

73 Secret Garden

Great song, smooth, calm and soothing to listen. With the background of Jerry Maguire. Top notch

74 Reason to Believe

A simple song of faith, hope, and love in the midst of depression, fatalism, and loss. - rogertfeeback

One of the best. Hear it done live.

75 Sad Eyes
76 Loose Ends

The intro is more than archetypical Springsteen: it is the mother of all Springsteen intro's.
Great song, great lyrics. And still just a leftover untill Tracks...

YES - I understand why "Born to run" and "Thunder Road" are up there. They are my favorites too. Along with "Point Blank" and "Lost in the flood" (heavy lyrics). But my vote for "Loose Ends" is because it's the most Springsteenesque song I've ever heard. It's almost as a pastische of himself and the soundscape, which should bring tears to anyone's eyes.

My god...can't stand, " You can look, but..."

77 Growin' Up

I still stop everything I am doing if I hear this song. Changed my life.

The acoustic guitar in this song is amazing

78 For You
79 Paradise

Greater than great song!

Beautifully written song. You can tell it's written by someone in their 50's thinking about their life, and how someday it wil end.

80 Across the Border

My favorite Springsteen's song. Great lyrics though. Should be played more often in concert.
