Bruce Springsteen picks his top 5 Springsteen songs and so does Big Joe Henry
With Bruce Springsteen's autobiography set to release this week (Sept. 27) it's no surprise that he's making the rounds to promote his new book. On Friday Bruce gave a long interview on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert where he talked about everything from growing up with mental health issues, to a funny glimpse into what he expects from his band mates.
However the part of the interview that was surprising was when Colbert coerced Bruce to pick his Top 5 Springsteen songs. In true Bruce fashion he didn't back down from the challenge.
With a little help at the end from the audience The Boss narrowed it down to six: “Born To Run,” “Thunder Road,” “Nebraska,” “The Rising,” “Jungleland,” and “Racing in the Street.” Hey six out of over 300 songs isn't bad, but it got me thinking if I had to choose what would be my list? Well, here it is...
5. New York City Serenade
4. Born to Run
3. Bobby Jean
My #1 all time favorite Bruce song: Thunder Road
