Not much need to talk. He’s the Boss. The Boss! And it’s his birthday,, so he gets a Greatest of All Tunes post.
On the shortlist, but not quite top 10: Janie Don’t You Lose Heart; I’m On Fire; Dancing in the Dark; Prove it all Night; Johnny 99, The River, Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out, Darkness at the Edge of Town.
THE TOP 10 SPRINGSTEEN SONGS
10. Hungry Heart (The River, 1980)
I decided to include either this song or Dancing in the Dark. Both are pure, unadulterated pop. This one is better. Interesting note: He actually wrote it for The Ramones.
9. Tougher Than the Rest (Tunnel of Love, 1988)
I think the Tunnel of Love album is pretty underrated, so I opted to include this one over Tenth Avenue Freeze Out. I don’t even think Bruce’s own version of this is the best one: That trophy would go to Everything But The Girl.
Hit next for more!
