18 Most Memorable Bruce Springsteen Lyrics

A little inspiration from the boss man himself.

18 Most Memorable Bruce Springsteen Lyrics
North Country Public Radio

There are three very important components to my relationship with my father; dinners at Outback, trips to Home Depot, and a deep-rooted appreciation for Bruce Springsteen. When I feel lost, stressed, or even homesick, it's nothing a quick listen to "Jungleland" can't fix. Nothing like the boss man to bring you back to your roots.

Here are 18 of Bruce Springsteen's most memorable lyrics to help get your week off to a good start, some chicken soup for the soul if you will.

1."We learned more from a three-minute record, baby than we ever learned in school." — "No Surrender"

2."Hey there mister bouncer, now all I wanna do is dance, but I swear I left my wallet back home in my workin' pants.""All That Heaven Will Allow"

3."A notion deep inside, that it ain't no sin to be glad you're alive." — "Badlands"

4."Barefoot girl sitting on the hood of a Dodge, drinking warm beer in the soft summer rain.""Jungleland"

5."Tramps like us, baby we were born to run." — "Born To Run"

6."God have mercy on the man who doubts what he's sure of.""Brilliant Disguise"

7."You ain't a beauty but, hey, you're alright." — "Thunder Road"

8."Poor man wanna be rich. Rich man wanna be king, and a king ain't satisfied, 'til he rules everything. I wanna go out tonight. I wanna find out what I got.""Badlands"

9. "Is a dream a lie if it don't come true or is it something worse?" "The River"

10. "And though this world is filled with the grace and beauty of God's hand, oh I wish I were blind when I see you with your man.""I Wish I Were Blind"

11. "But I got debts that no honest man can pay." "Atlantic City"

12. "Jesus, send some sweet women to save all your clowns." "Wild Billy's Circus Story"

13."Well, it ought to be easy ought to be simple enough, yeah man meets woman and they fall in love. But the house is haunted and the ride gets rough, and you've got to learn to live with what you can't rise above.""Tunnel of Love"

14. "Everything dies baby that's a fact. But maybe everything that dies someday comes back." "Atlantic City"

15. "Walk tall, or baby, or don't walk at all." New York City Serenade

16. "Somehow all you ever needs' never really quite enough." —Reno

17. "Mama always told me not to look into the sights of the sun. Oh, but mama, that's where the fun is." — "Blinded by the light"

18.“Someday we’ll look back on this and it will all seem funny.” — “Rosalita”

I love you, Dad. Thank you for also being the man.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
