The Boss (in Barcelona – me, not him)

Following my last blog on The Boss, here’s a note I sent to my daughter Bex.


Your lovely note stimulated a blog, a couple of playlists and this note as I arrived in Barcelona, where Bruce once played a brilliant concert.

So here’s my Top Ten:

  1. Thunder Road
  2. No Surrender
  3. Born to Run
  4. Glory Days
  5. Tougher than the Rest
  6. My Home Town
  7. Growin’ Up
  8. Backstreets
  9. Jungleland
  10. If I should fall behind

Bruce is exactly the same age as me, the same height (!), and lives in the same US state of New Jersey.  His stories, in many ways, are my stories.

And here are ten lesser-known songs that I love:

  • Outlaw Pete
  • Wild Billy’s Circus Story
  • Sinaloa Cowboys
  • My best was never good enough
  • My Father’s House
  • Last Man Standing
  • The Angel
  • Incident on 57th Street
  • Jersey Girl
  • Meeting Across the River
