Can we take a moment to appreciate the sheer power of Born In The USA?

The keyboard riff is as strong as anything and the drums are shown no mercy. The vocal is merciless. If there was ever a track to define powerhouse, this would be it.

******* fantastic.

LOVE the song.
HATE how it’s been used and abused by others.
So ironic how the masses use it as a redneck anthem.
Or maybe redneck is a bit harsh. Patriotic then.
Such powerful lyrics.

Yes, an excellent film which had me smiling the whole way through it.

Highly recommend watching it, a lovely film.
It's easy to forget now how hopelessly uncool Bruce had become by the end of the 80s which was kind of hard on people like me who had only really got into him in the light of Born in the USA and were still working through the back catalogue.

I was only a baby in the late 80s, the break up really messed him up mentally.

What are your 5 favourite albums, and songs?

Depends on my mood and how high I am to be honest but that's the great thing about Bruce, he can make you boogie, he can make you angry and he can make you cry, there's always something.
