TURNTABLE TUESDAY: BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN

Here at the Audible Indulgence headquarters, we’re all about themes. Themed playlists, themed parties, themed ­­­­blogs. That’s why we’ve decided to start our first weekly theme:

Turntable Tuesday!!

This weekly post will feature artists who were prominently in their prime during the turntable era. Why? Because **music really does sound better on vinyl**

For my first #TurnTues, it would be wrong if I didn’t speak on someone I was recently had the privilege to see live: Bruce Springsteen. The Boss has managed to shape an entire generation and has created a cult-like following among those who were lucky enough to be in college in the ’70-80s. No parents, no rules, born to run, right?

Under the lights of the Excel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota, Bruce brought women and men alike to their knees as he belted out feel-good hits in a marathon concert featuring his album The River. Seriously, this guy is 66, and he has more stamina than I do at the ripe age of 22. He played for three and a half hours with the amazing E-Street Band, taking maybe two pauses for water.

I don’t feel as though I need to mention songs you should listen to, because you all know and love them already. Let’s just take a moment to look back on Bruce when he was young, in one of the best music videos to date, Dancing in the Dark (spoiler alert: Courtney Cox is a huge fan girl and it’s amazing).

PS: He re-created this moment with a cute little grandma at the MN show (4:40) and it melted my heart. Hoping The Chainsmokers will let me do this when I’m 80.
