Across the borderline (Ry Cooder) – Bruce Springsteen

Do you remember this song? I heard it for the first time in Spain, Barcelona, in 1993. We he started singing in Spanish it was so awesome! I was speechless. Why is it people don’t make more sign requests for this one? it’s beautiful! They never ask for this one. I looked for a video from 1993 but they are not very good so I chose this terrific version instead. And remaining on the big questions moment, why is it they never made an official album version of this concert!!!

Thunder road’s got it.

If it’s the long time choice of preference of millions of fans, if every time you ask What’s your favourite song? the ultimate answer is always Ok I like them all but if I have to really choose, well, in THAT case…
If in every Springsteen show around the world, everybody and I mean EVERYBODY sing it with him word by word, even the refrain (by all means, it does not even exist, a refrain in this song) and those final notes ending on na na na naaaa, there is a reason. Everyone of us has his o her reason, and we all have it in Thunder Road.


Held up that flag, will ya?


“Hi! that is my flag! I made that and ironed the letters on for the Wembley show in 2013. It was amazing when Bruce took it from us, our legs went to jelly, and then when he held it up! it was amazing!! And even more amazing when someone later posted the pic on the Internet!!! I didn’t want to take pics myself because he was so close to us and I wanted to feel and remember the moment without a camera or phone between us. Fantastic day! Brooooce!!!”

–That is so cool! Is also cool that you understand the importance of not having always a camera to “see” him and the show.

–That’s right! I can’t mess around with a phone at a Bruce concert! I let everyone else do that! I love him sooo much. I chose Bobby Jean for no particular reason other than I love that song!  But lately I have a new favourite… NYC Serenade in Rome 2013 omg!!! That song is incredible! Gives me goosebumps!!!
