Here's a challenge for SoCruel (or anyone else for that matter).

Make a boxed set compilation of Bruce Springsteen songs.  It can be made up of anything from four to six discs.

A Bruce Springsteen Box Set? No problem Mr. Dice. The issue with a Boss Box Set is much like U2, part of the brilliance of Bruce is how he sets up his albums. The flow that they have. He will leave off a great song (some of his biggest hits were done by others) if that song doesn't "fit" the album. Individually the songs on Born to Run are great, put them with the running order on that album and it's magical.

Well you made a good stab at it all the same.  I don't recognise some of the songs and I only have the single album version of Tracks.

I'll attempt my own when I've thought more on it.  Disappointed not to see Youngstown.

I had Youngstown on the last disc, and then took it out. Reason being is I love the live version from the Live in NY release, but decided to go with only studio tracks for the box set.

The studio version of Youngstown is one of my favourite songs of his.  I'm still going to include the live version of American Skin from Live in New York City.

Nice TD, I do recommend checking out the full Tracks Box. There's a lot of great songs you're missing. Also, nothing from the Promise album (except title track)? If you don't have The Promise album, get it, it's great. A full double set that was left over from the Darkness sessions because they were deemed "to commercial" and didn't fit the grittier direction he wanted for that album. Finally, no Long Walk Home? One of his best songs this century.

Here's a few songs from Tracks and The Promise you may not have heard:

Take 'Em as They Come


Back In Your Arms


Cynthia


Man at the Top


Talk to Me


Gotta Get That Feeling

Definitive U2 Top 10: 1. One, 2. Bad, 3. With Or Without You, 4. Running to Stand Still, 5. So Cruel, 6. Ultraviolet, 7. I Still Havenít Found What Iím Looking For, 8. Hawkmoon 269, 9. Red Hill Mining Town, 10. Luminous Times

Bump!

I was listening to Edgeís show yesterday on U2 X Radio and his guest was Tom Morello of RATM. Morello toured with The Boss as an E Street Band member a few years ago and he said in the interview that they had played over 180 different songs during the last 40 shows of that tour. Morello had to learn over 250 songs before joining the E Street Band.

Staggering. :o
First Chair. Last Call.

The live version of Tom Joad with Tom Morello is excellent

Compare that with the Lovetown tour where Larry complained about the 40 songs (estimation, give or take) potential set list. "It felt like being in a juke box" he said  ::)
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...
