Tonight we're throwing our Saturday Night Springsteen Party live from the Asbury Park Boardwalk from 7:00pm until 10:00pm. You can find out more about the event here.

Since we're celebrating the music Bruce Springsteen has made over the years, I figured now would be as good a time as any to give you my top ten favorite Bruce Springsteen songs. You can check out my list below, then I want to know what your favorite Springsteen song is in the comment section!

My top ten Bruce Springsteen songs:

10. "The River"

Album: The River (1980)

Favorite lyrics:
Now those memories come back to haunt me
They haunt me like a curse
Is a dream a lie if it don't come true
Or is it something worse

9. "The Promised Land"

Album: Darkness on the Edge of Town (1978)

Favorite lyrics:
Blow away the dreams that tear you apart
Blow away the dreams that break your heart
Blow away the lies that leave you nothing but lost and brokenhearted

8. "Reason To Believe" live

Album: Live 1975–85 (1986)

Favorite lyrics:
Now Mary Lou loved Johnny with a love mean and true
She said "Baby I'll work for you every day and bring my money home to you"
One day he up and left her and ever since that
She waits down at the end of that dirt road for young Johnny to come back
Struck me kinda funny seemed kind of funny sir to me
How at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe

7. "Backstreets"

Album: Born to Run (1975)

Favorite lyrics:
Remember all the movies, Terry, we'd go see
Trying to learn how to walk like heroes we thought we had to be
And after all this time to find we're just like all the rest
Stranded in the park and forced to confess to hiding on the backstreets

6. "No Surrender"

Album: Born in the USA (1984)

Favorite lyrics:
We busted out of class had to get away from those fools
We learned more from a three minute record than we ever learned in school

5. "Shackled and Drawn"

Album: Wrecking Ball (2012)

Favorite lyrics:
I always loved the feel of sweat on my shirt
Stand back son and let a man work
Let a man work, is that so wrong
I woke up this morning shackled and drawn

4. "Better Days"

Album: Lucky Town (1992)

Favorite lyrics:
Every fool's got a reason to feelin' sorry for himself
And turn his heart to stone
Tonight this fool's halfway to heaven and just a mile outta hell
And I feel like I'm comin' home

3. "Racing in the Street"

Album: Darkness on the Edge of Town (1978)

Favorite lyrics:
For all the shut down strangers and hot rod angels
Rumbling through this promised land
Tonight my baby and me we're gonna ride to the sea
And wash these sins off our hands

2. "Incident on 57th Street"

Album: The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle (1973)

Favorite lyrics:
Johnny was sittin' on the fire escape watchin' the kids playin' down the street
He called down "Hey little heroes, summer's long but I guess it ain't very sweet around here anymore"
Janey sleeps in sheets damp with sweat, Johnny sits up alone and watches her dream on, dream on
And the sister prays for lost souls, then breaks down in the chapel after everyone's gone

1. "Thunder Road"

Album: Born to Run (1975)

Favorite lyrics:
Well now I'm no hero
That's understood
All the redemption I can offer, girl
Is beneath this dirty hood
With a chance to make it good somehow
Hey what else can we do now
