Boss Week, Pt. 3: Maybe Everything That Dies Some Day Comes Back
While Darkness On The Edge of Town sort of saved me during the worst year of my life, it was Springsteen's Nebraska that had put the Boss on my personal musical map.
I could connect much more to stripped down 4-track home-recordings that had been intended as demo versions for his follow up to The River than to all of his full band stuff I had known before discovering this album.
My personal stand-out track from Nebraska has always been Atlantic City – and not just because there are a lot of fine cover versions of that one around...
If you happen to have another version of this song, feel free to send it in and I'll include it in this list.
