in 2012?

 

maybe add in a time machine to the question.

2001 radiohead vs. 1979 bruce springsteen.

that would make it interesting

 

anyway idk i never saw the boss live.

in 1979 you would have got
Blinded by the Light
Growin' Up
Spirit in the Night
It's Hard to be a Saint...
Rosalita
Plus everything on Born to Run and Darkness on the Edge of Town.


That would kick ass.

that video was meant to be a link to a playlist for the entire 1975 hammersmith odeon concert dvd that came with the born to run box set. it's the best. i cant get it to just be a link. anyway thunder road is still better than radiohead basically so the point remains.

I'm hoping he lets chris christie join the band cause that would rule


It is all part of her highly specific ambition: to work some day for a Chinese automaker and provide the cultural insights and English fluency the company needs to supply the next generation of fuel-efficient taxis that New York City plans to choose in 2021. “It is my dream,” she said, “and I will devote myself wholeheartedly to it.”

i've never seen bruce live but i'd imagine he's hard to top though there is something to be said for hearing radiohead songs live. the national anthem live makes you reconsider things

Unlike Radiohead, Bruce's shows are over 3 hours long & he doesn't perform the same crap over & over.

i went through a spell where i tried to get into Bruce, ive heard all of born to run and Nebraska, and on one of my good buddies word i tried The Rising as well. 

 

ill put it to you this way, i got love for the boss. the guy can play, he can sing, his songs have got some nice themes in them, its just not for me. i tried i really did!

never seen Bruce live, but I like some of his songs:

 

Atlantic City

The Rising

Streets of Philadelphia

Tunnel of Love

Secret Garden

Human Touch

Brilliant Disguise

 

however, the Bruce songs that seen to get played all the time(Dancing in the Dark, Born in the USA) are terrible.
