What songs should I expect, in general? I'm trying to be more prepared for this concert than last October. I have 11 or 12 of his albums, so I'm mostly ready to go, I think.

He's been really mixing it up lately, so it's actually hard to say. You'll still get the obvious ones like Born To Run, and American Land is always there. But a lot of the songs from Magic have disappeared - the only ones remaining are Radio Nowhere, Livin' In The Future, Long Walk Home, and Last To Die. Badlands is still there, as is The Rising. Mary's Place was brought back a while ago and has been at every show since.

I'm quite familiar with songs from Born to Run, The Rising, and Magic. It's some of the earlier tracks I'm trying to quickly familiarize myself with, especially stuff off The River and Born in the USA.

I have to say, as much as I wish I could see him again, I'm glad I didn't get Mary's Place at the spring show I went to. Twenty minutes of Mary's Place.

Yeah, I'm not a big Mary's Place fan, either. I prefer most of The Rising's other tracks to it.

Yeah Mary's Place is probably my least favorite track off of The Rising.


I think I'll wear my Obama t-shirt to the concert...

you guys are forgetting about Let's Be Friends, talk about least favorite song on the Rising, that is the perfect candidate.

I rank The Rising, upon last listen:

1. You're Missing
2. Into the Fire
3. My City of Ruins
4. The Rising
5. Lonesome Day
6. Waitin' on a Sunny Day
7. Empty Sky
8. Worlds Apart
9. Countin' on a Miracle
10. Paradise
11. The Fuse
12. Nothing Man
13. Further On (Up the Road)
14. Mary's Place
15. Let's Be Friends (Skin to Skin)

I like the first 13. Not a fan of the last 2.

Let's Be Friends may be one of the worst songs that boy has written and recorded.

I've honestly probably heard Mary's Place a little too much, it's probably biased me a bit. I've a few relatives who love Springsteen who love that song and play it at get-togethers. Often.
