Springsteen Survivor - Born to Run - Round 1

Please vote for your LEAST favorite.

Losing to New York City Serenade 8 to 4, the E Street Suffle was the last song to be eliminated from The Wild The Innocent and the E Street Shuffle. Moving on to the Tier 1 semi-final will be:

4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)
Incident on 57th Street
Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)
New York City Serenade

And as a reminder, the songs currently going to the Tier 2 semi are:
Lost in the Flood
For You
Spirit in the Night
It's Hard to Be A Saint in the City


Born to Run, because of the vast amount of votes it received in the favorite albums thread, will have five songs proceed to the tier 1 semi-final.

Night.

Meeting is gorgeous and deserves to survive at least one round.

I appreciate Meeting in the context of the album, but I never listen to it otherwise.

"Jungleland" should win the entire thing outright.

"Born to Run," "Thunder Road," "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out," and "Backstreets" are my picks to move on.

Thunder Road
Backstreets
Born To Run
Jungleland

are essential.

I'd like to see She's The One ahead of Tenth Avenue for the fifth spot, but it probably wouldn't matter which one went.

I'll do a little personal ranking of the tracks.

1. Thunder Road
2. Born To Run
3. Jungleland
4. Backstreets
5. Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out
6. She's The One
7. Night
8. Meeting Across The River

But, again, the mandatory disclaimer:

That doesn't mean that I don't think "Meeting" is a great song.

OK, all of these songs are terrific. I don't even know how to rank these songs, they're all so good. Night is an unbelievable song, which would probably win on a number of Springsteen's other albums. But it might be my 7th favorite on this album.

Meeting Across the River is a very beautiful song, but regretfully I've got to vote for it here.

"Meeting" is gorgeous and does NOT deserve worst song on the album. Geez, what's wrong with some people on Interference?????

1. Um ... people have a different opinion than you?

2. You have to vote for something. You might love everything on the album, but if you want to participate, then you have to pick a least favorite.

3. So kindly get over it.

I don't even think it makes a whole lot of sense in the context of the album; should have been placed on Darkness instead of something nondescript like Factory or Streets Of Fire.

That said, it's an amazing song. Night should go first.

shame this round won't be much fun.

Night for me, in the context of the album I find it decidedly average, and I really do think Meeting is in the top five here, but looks like it's going.

Born to Run to win the whole thing hopefully, with Jungleland, Thunder Road, Tenth and Meeting to go through would be my hopes, but I will definitely join a petition to get She's the One through ahead of the hugely overrated Backstreets.

For me, Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out, Backstreets and Jungleland are givens. The three vying for my final two spots are Born To Run, She's The One and Thunder Road.

you could slice about a minute off backstreets and not only would you lose nothing you'd make it better.

And where exactly would that minute come from?

Backstreets is one of Springsteen's definitive songs.

No. No. No.

That's his best song, you don't touch a second of it.
