The Saddest Song Ever
#1
The River. Springsteen's crowning moment, in my book. Recorded in 1980, I didn't really turn on to him until 1981. I was in High School. That summer I would got to the pool all day, then go home, shutt myself in my room, and listen to it over and over. The whole album is pretty melancholy, and this is it's lowest point. Wow. The guy's still got it.



It's possible to become so defiled in this world that your own father and mother will abandon you, and if that happens, God will always believe in your ability to mend your ways.

That song in concert really blew when Steve Van Zandt left the band for a while. Boss's wife sang the harmony but Steve sounded far more anguished trying to hit the higher notes. A really nice touch.

What did you think of Nebraska? That's my all-time favorite Springsteen.
Go away.

Nebraska was another Masterpiece. His last great album. Everything after that was formula. Line up the tracks on Born to Run next to Born in the USA. BTR=BUSA, 10th Ave Freeze Out=Glory Days, etc.

And. Again Steven's reaching on harmonies really does it.
