Weekend Rock Question: What Is the Best Bruce Springsteen Song of the 1980s?
Bruce Springsteen has been on the road playing The River for the past month, and the reception to the tour has been so ecstatic that he tacked on a second American leg and he’s taking it to Europe in the summer. The initial plan was to merely play it once or twice to support last year’s Ties That Bind box set, but he’ll be on the road pretty steadily through late July, and possibly beyond even that.
Now we have a question for you: What is Bruce Springsteen’s best song of the 1980s? Anything he released that decade will count. That includes huge hits like “Hungry Heart” and “Dancing in the Dark,” lesser-known albums tracks like “Valentine’s Day” and “Crush on You” and even B-sides like “Shut Out the Light” and “Be True.” We’ll even count songs he wrote for other people, like Donna Summer’s “Protection” and Gary U.S. Bonds’ “Out of Work.” Vote for whatever 1980s Bruce Springsteen song you want, but please only vote once and only for a single selection.
