    Are we really comparing Bruce Springsteen and the Jonas Brothers?

    all this talk about rockers who die and make their band bigger forces you to offer my own opinion on the opposite of that happening with another big name. Bruce Springsteen wrote a ton of hits that are actually not great songs by any stretch of the imagination, however, he lived long enough that he is now considered a great song writer by the music community. He managed to pull the exact opposite of what should happen as you grow old. He still makes music that is no better than decent, but he is patronized by his peers and people act like he is some kind of genius. It's fascinating. It's like a lifetime achievement award for every year he keeps breathing
    I am not a huge Springsteen fan. I agree with you, most of his stuff is decent.

    HOwever "Streeets of Philadephia" is definatly one of my favorite songs.

    I don't usually associate ATPTG with the Stones. It's a Temptations masterpiece. Always has been, always will be. That's like someone saying, "Oh, whenever I hear Satisfaction I associate it with Otis Redding."
    Can I Get A Witness, Carol, Everybody Needs Someone To Love, You Can't Catch Me, Not Fade Away, I Wanna Be Your Man (actually written by The Beatles), It's All Over Now . . . that's all I can remember at the moment.

    Hard to choose, but at this point, I'd say "God Only Knows." On another day, I might say "Wouldn't It Be Nice." And those songs were released on the SAME SINGLE. Crazy.

    Kind of on the same subject, have you ever read the book Killing Yourself to Live: 85% of a True Story by Chuck Klosterman? It's my absolute favorite book, and a very easy read. It touches on the fact that bands that die young are making the best career move they could ever make. It relates it to life and relationships you had in your life on how you always look back and think of the one that got away as the greatest girl ever because you never got a chance to see her in a different light- Like how we remember the Beatles for all the great things they did, but we never got to experience the 1995 John Lennon goes Country tour. He writes about it as he is doing an article in Spin where he drives around the country to all the places where rock stars have died
    I'll have to check that out.

    I have never, ever been able to force myself into truly liking Pet Sounds. I'm far too conceited and cynical I think. Tough luck for me, because I know I'm missing out.

    Are we really comparing Bruce Springsteen and the Jonas Brothers?
    Both are critically acclaimed
    Both are from New Jersey
    Both sell a ton of albums
    Both have songs that people like, and in turn think they are great


    that is my problem with Springsteen. It's not like I don't recognize his right to exist, I do. It's that he is often referred to as one of the best ever. His fans are like Dave Matthews Band fans where they think he is the best thing to ever discover music. That is my problem with him. He will go down as someone like Bob Dylan when he should go down as someone like John Couger Mellencamp. Like Pearl Jam is one of my favorite bands, but I recognize they are not the best ever, probably not even Top 50, but Bruce fans think he is better than the freakin Beatles. They talk about him like he is a god. He wrote Working on the ing Highway- that shit sucks! Born to Run is him over preforming a bunch of lame-ass lyrics. And his first 2 albums were only relevant to someone if they were a union worker in Jersey. He didn't even try to use metaphors like the Beatles did so they would relate to everyone. When he was writing a song about leaving work, it was a song about leaving work:traffic, time cards, your boss, everything. That is lame.

    My favorite song is The Band's cover of Dylan's "I Shall Be Released." Of course, anything by The Band is kickass.
    The Band had some kick ass songs.

    The Weight is probably my favorite followed by Acadian Driftwood.

    I like it but it's not something I can just listen to all the time, front to back. For a "best album ever" contender, I think it has a bit too much filler. Still, those two songs are among the most beautiful ever recorded. So fun to dissect all of the layers piece by piece.

    When you talk about the Beatles being great, you're really talking about Lennon and McCartney. Those two left a huge impact on the music scene. You can also thank them for mastering multi-track recording. They didn't just come to America in the 60s with great haircuts and faces that made our moms wet. But as far as musical genius is concerned, it gets no better than the Beatles.
    I agree.

    But, you have to give Harrison some credit.

    this could be its own thread. one of my personal faves is "Kyle from Incantaion has a Moustache." i think they also got perma banned from SA for setting a club on fire.

    I completely disagree, but that was some funny shit. BTW, Clapton fans are the exact same way.

    I think it was only a matter of time before I landed on Springsteen. It's a shame he is even mentioned in this thread considering the title. So sorry everyone I'm ready to move on

    Oh, and just my opinion, but Revolver isn't the Beatles best album. It might not even be their third best album. White Album is definitely their best.
    The White Album is definitely my favorite. I have to make Revolver my second on the list because there are so many songs that I just love. Abbey Road, Sgt. Peppers, and Let It Be round up my Top 5.

    God Only Knows is perhaps the greatest Beach Boy song.

    Speaking of Clapton and how bad the 80's were for mainstream rock (especially artists that were big in the 70's), this one pretty much sums up the decade for me.

    The songs I listed are the ones that established them in the 60s. It wasn't until the late 60s that they went on with their own stuff.

    I guess I was just making a point that The Beatles made their way into music by writing their own material, whereas The Stones debuted with covers.
