I'm finally blasting the
energy level UP with this week's video!
Bruce Springsteen knows how to SHAKE IT UP!
More importantly, The Boss conveys his messages through his heartland rock. With a mic in my hand, the very first phrase from "Born to Run" completely consumed me. I had always enjoyed listening to this great song on the radio. I never thought singing "Born to Run" would resonate with me so well. At least, that's how I feel. I just decided to sing it and I completely fell in love with everything about "Born to Run"! It felt so natural. I never had to learn the song. Maybe, I was a rebel WITH a cause in a past life. It's one thing to listen to a song and appreciate it, but the appreciation becomes a consuming experience when singing it. I hope that you will all see how much I truly enjoy singing "Born to Run"!
Born to Run is the third album by the American rock singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen. It was released on August 25, 1975 through Columbia Records. It captured the heaviness of Springsteen's earlier releases while displaying a more diverse range of influences.
Born to Run was a critical and commercial success and became Springsteen's breakthrough album. It peaked at number three on the Billboard 200, eventually selling six million copies in the US by the year 2000. Two singles were released from the album: "Born to Run" and "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out"; the first helped Springsteen to reach mainstream popularity. The tracks "Thunder Road" and "Jungleland" became staples of album-oriented rock radio and Springsteen concert high points. The album has been placed on several "best ever" lists and is listed in the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry of historic recordings.
On November 14, 2005, a "30th Anniversary" remaster of the album was released as a box set including two DVDs: a production diary film and a concert movie. Being ranked number 18 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, it is widely considered his magnum opus along with his 1984 album Born in the U.S.A..
