Bruce Springsteen Biography

Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen was born in September 23, 1949. His nicknamed "The Boss", is an American songwriter, singer and musician. He has recorded and toured with the E Street Band. Springsteen is extensively known for his brand of heartland rock infused with pop hooks, poetic lyrics, and Americana emotions centered on his native New Jersey.Springsteen's recordings have be liable to alternate between commercially available rock albums and somber folk-oriented works. Much of his status stems from the concerts and marathon shows in which he and the E Street Band present intense ballads, rousing anthems, and party rock and roll songs, amongst which he intersperses whimsical or deeply emotional stories.His most famous albums, Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A., typify his penchant for ruling grandeur in the struggles of daily life. He has slowly become recognized with progressive politics. He is also noted for his support of various respite and upgrading efforts in New Jersey and elsewhere, and for his response to the September 11, 2001, attacks, on which his album The Rising reflects.He has got many awards for his work, including eighteen Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes and an Academy Award, and continues to have a strong global fan base. He has sold over 65 million albums in the U.S, and 120 million worldwide

Born To Run - Lyrics

In the day we sweat it out in the streets of a runaway american dream
At night we ride through mansions of glory in suicide machines
Sprung from cages out on highway 9,
Chrome wheeled, fuel injected and steppin out over the line
Baby this town rips the bones from your back
Its a death trap, its a suicide rap
We gotta get out while were young
`cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run

Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend
I want to guard your dreams and visions
Just wrap your legs round these velvet rims
And strap your hands across my engines
Together we could break this trap
Well run till we drop, baby well never go back
Will you walk with me out on the wire
`cause baby Im just a scared and lonely rider
But I gotta find out how it feels
I want to know if love is wild, girl I want to know if love is real

Beyond the palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard
The girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors
And the boys try to look so hard
The amusement park rises bold and stark
Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
I wanna die with you wendy on the streets tonight
In an everlasting kiss

The highways jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
Everybodys out on the run tonight but theres no place left to hide
Together wendy well live with the sadness
Ill love you with all the madness in my soul
Someday girl I dont know when were gonna get to that place
Where we really want to go and well walk in the sun
But till then tramps like us baby we were born to run

Top Bruce Springsteen Songs

I know that Springsteen is one of those rare artists whose songs impact us differently at different points in our lives, so I include a song like Thunder Road for a totally different reason at 41 than I would have when I was 18. Regardless, for me it always makes the Top 15.

1. Born To Run. Whether it's the original version, the live version from the 1985 tour, or acoustic, it's still the greatest rock song of all time, and one that will improve your mood from the moment the drums kick in.

2. Thunder Road. If it still doesn't give you goose bumps 30 years later, then you have no soul. And if you get the chance, look up the YouTube video of Bruce doing this as a duet with Melissa Etheridge. Classic.

3. Growin' Up. Because at some point in our lives, we've all "stood stone-like at midnight".

4. Rosalita. I wish I had a dollar for every time I've used the line "Some day we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny."

5. Hearts of Stone. An incredible song that Bruce originally gave to Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, he finally released his version on the Tracks CD.

6. Lost in the Flood. A post-Vietnam song from the first album that, sadly, translates well into the Iraq War-era.

7. Sherry Darling. Along with "Double Shot (of My Baby's Love)" and "Quarter to Three", the greatest frat-rock song ever.

8. Bobby Jean. Bruce's farewell to Little Steven Van Zandt in 1983. Thankfully he returned to the band for The Rising.

9. Mary's Place. Released in 2002, it's not only the best song on The Rising, but also proof that the E Street Band hadn't lost a step.

10. Brilliant Disguise. From the Tunnel of Love CD. Written during his troubled first marriage, the perfect example of someone opening a vein and just letting the lyrics pour out.

Bruce Springsteen Brief Introduction

* Born: 23 September 1949
* Birthplace: Freehold, New Jersey
* Best Known As: Working-class singer/songwriter/guitarist

Name at birth: Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen launhced his first album in 1973, but it was his second album, The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle in 1974 that led a rock detractor to call him "the future of rock'n'roll." A year afterward Springsteen launched Born to Run to critical and popular success, and he was a bona fide rock star, nicknamed "The Boss." In the '80s he released The River to vast success, and his 1984 album, Born in the U.S.A. was on top of the charts for seven weeks. In the '90s Springsteen left his back-up band and recorded solo, but by the end of the decade was touring with them again. Known for his songs about working-class Americans and for his generous and frequent live performances, Springsteen has been one of the top rock acts for nearly three decades. His 2005 album, Devils & Dust made five Grammy nominations, winning one for best solo rock performance.
