My Springsteen Dreamlist

Posted by on 27/05/2012

Here is the list of Springsteen songs i hope he’s playing @ the Pinkpop festival on monday may 28th.  I know there’s a big chance he’s gonna play at least two of them (from setlists from the recent Spanish and German concerts. The first song on the list (Factory) i’ve heard them performing live in 1999 in Arnhem. I was totally surprised then to hear that song.

The first time i heard that song (and i didn’t know then it was a Springsteen song) was somewhere in the last years from the 80’s by the a-capella band The Flying Pickets. That version then already had a huge impact on me. Years later when i found out it was a Bruce-written song (from Darkness) it didn’t surprise me at all he wrote it, cause it’s a typical Bruce song.

That concert in Arnhem was for my wife the first “Boss” concert ever.  She came with me because she knew how much i liked it. But after she heard them performing “Working on the Highway” she was fan too. And most of all she was fan from The Big Man Clarence Clemons. So that’s some reasons i hope he’s playing that song. And from his last album i really love “Jack of all trades”.

Do you have anything to say?
