Bruce Springsteen’s incredible career is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon – the musician is releasing his 20th studio album this week.
The revered American artist is known for socially conscious lyrics that portray the experiences and struggles of a colourful array of characters, from army veterans to working-class Americans and ex-stuntmen.
He is one of the best-selling artists in the world, despite never achieving a number one single in the US or the UK. Among his most adored songs are “Born in the USA”, from his 1984 album of the same name, “Dancing in the Dark”, “Hungry Heart”, “Thunder Road”, and “Badlands”. He has won 20 Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes, an Oscar, and a Tony Award for his Springsteen on Broadway residency at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York.
To celebrate The Boss, members of The Independent’s culture team have picked their favourite Springsteen songs.
