Put your bets down now

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are gonna play at halftime of the Super Bowl February 1. What's the setlist?

Wired thinks:

  • Born to Run
  • Glory Days
  • Streets of Philadelphia
  • I'm on Fire
  • Blinded by the Light
  • Born in the U.S.A.

Remember, this is likely to be a medley, so all the songs have to be under three minutes. I say "Born to Run" and "U.S.A" are no-brainers. "Streets" is in if the Eagles are in the game. Other than that, I dunno (I only own two Springsteen albums -- Hammersmith Odeon, London '75 and We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions -- I'm not real familiar with his entire repertoire).

What do you think?

I'm thinking he'll do three songs, and that he'll be trying to inspire the country in a time of great challenges and change, and he'll want to promote his new CD.

I'm leaning towards Badlands, Working on a Dream and Born to Run.

Anyone interested in actually casting their votes on the setlist can do so at: www.fridaybrucefix.com, results to be published Jan 30th.

Should be interesting to hear what Bruce decides to play!
