Bruce Springsteen, “Factory”

I was coming of age around this time, 19 years old in 1976. Everyone, I mean everyone, loved Bruce Springsteen back in the day. No one hated him. He had no enemies.

And his debut album, Born to Run, was probably one of the greatest albums ever made. This was the second album, Darkness on the Edge of Town, and it was also fantastic. Bruce unite the rock world. This was before all this stupid genres started claiming the mantle of rock and roll and hating on everyone else. The punks were worse at this than anyone else.

If you are young and have never heard this music 39 years ago, check it out. It’s breathtaking.

  1. I used to like Springsteen before he became annoying. I still stick with Tom Waits and Nick Cave. Sometimes, maybe Bob Seger for a less annoying version of Springsteen.

    Tee Set and other English-singing Dutch bands of that period really picked the campiest of American and British influences, with the possible exception of the Golden Earrings and Shocking Blue. Of course, the Dutch language music scene of that time was even campier. They used to be great back then but are totally cringeworthy when you listen to them today. Rob De Nijs has probably withstood time better than any of the others, but a lot of Dutch people still sing along with ‘Pappie loopt tog niet zo snell’. But the best Dutch language pop song of that period was Ramses Shaffy and Liesbeth List’s ‘Pastorale’.
