best bruce springsteen songs

#10. My Hometown

The song is a very personal song for Springsteen as it is about Freehold, Newjersey, where he grew up. It is hard to say that he has nice memories of there.

#9. Human Touch

The song is about a love that is lost and slipped away.

#8. Waitin’ On A Sunny Day

The song was written for the 9/11 attacks in the USA. The song has very powerful and emotional lyrics.

#7. Glory Days

It is a song about looking to the past, as the main character of the song looks at his high school days and remembers all the people and the days that they spend together.

#6. You Never Can Tell

It is a lovely song about a couple who get married when they are young as they remember that time when they go to the same place that they get married as a “monsieur” and “madame.”

#5. Born to Run

The song was also covered by Allan Clarke soon after it was released. The lyrics were written by Springsteen; It is an amazing love song.

#4. Born in the USA

The song is about the US armies who turned back from Vietnam. Because the war was not a victory for the US, the troops that turned back from Vietnam were not cheerfully welcomed. However, It doesn’t change the fact that they fought for their countries. Therefore Springsteen dedicated this hit for them.

#3. Tougher Than the Rest

The rock song is about a strong lover that tells his girl that he will be there for her under any condition.

#2. Streets of Philadelphia

The song was also used as a soundtrack of the film Philadelphia. The song brought Springsteen an Oscar for the “Best Original Song” and a Grammy for “Song of the Year,” “Best Rock Song,” “Best Male Vocal” and “The best song written for a movie or TVshow.” Tom Hanks mentioned in an interview that a Springsteen song would guarantee an excellent scene for a movie.

#1. Dancing In the Dark

Sometimes the best things happen at the hardest times. This song is like proving this as Springsteen wrote it at a time that he was not able to write much. It quickly became a massive hit of the time. The song has a fiery theme!

I am an avid Mac-user, nerd, musician, freelancer, and gamer. Ask me about my collection of M:TG cards! I've also got a horrible habit of needing the absolute newest technological wonder, whether it's stable or not. If they made a home-version of the LHC, I'd have 2. Additionally, I've been playing music for the better part of 14 years. I'm self-taught on piano, guitar, trumpet, trombone, sax, clarinet, bass, drums and other percussion, and around 10 other instruments. I also spend quite a bit of time dabbling in synthesizers, sequencers, and samplers. I'm also founder of Quotelicious where I collect and share the quotes I love.
