Call Me Springsteen

Someone once asked me if I could be any singer (dead or alive) who would I choose to be. The answer my friends is The Boss. Springsteen would easily be in my top five. You’ll have to forgive me for hedging like that, but there just might be a couple more I would consider. Scratch that, Sinatra is one of them.

Anyway, here is a synopsis of why I choose Springsteen. So much of his music is full of raw energy and passion. So many of them are tied into personal moments for me. When I hear Streets of Philadelphia I cannot help but think of my uncle. It is bittersweet.

Tunnel of Love just resonates with me. It is a song that reminds of me of so many happy times. His songs are often stories that the common man can relate to, like The River.

But it is more than that. Look at footage of him performing live and you see someone who gives it all every time. He just seems to be the epitome of real and genuine.

Still love this next one
