REVIEWS
Average points: 4.74 (Reviews: 96)
**
nicht das beste von ihm
*****
...sehr gut...
*****
Etwas gar elegisch, aber trotzdem stark.
*****
Nur knapp keine 6 für mich, eine weitere starke Nummer ab "Born in the USA". Wer mal wie ich erlebt hat, wie 65'000 Leute den Song mitgesungen haben, wird nie mehr behaupten, der Song sei lahm...
******

Die letzte Single aus "Born In The USA". Wieder ein Top 10 Hit. Einer der Songs aus der langen Reihe, in denen Bruce das Verhältnis zu seinem Vater Douglas thematisiert. Andere Songs aus dieser Reihe sind "Adam Raised A Cain" (1978), "Independence Day" (1980), "My Father`s House" (1982), und "Walk Like A Man" (1987).
****
Ordentliche Retro-Nummer, nicht das Best auf "Born In The USA".
*****
...wunderschön, knapp keine sechs...
****
Für "Born in the USA" eine eher schwache Nummer... Knapp 4*!
****
eine 4+, aber deutlich keine 5
*****
Single # 7 !!! von das 1984-er album "Born In The USA"... war in Januar 1986 ins Hitparade in NL.... nur am Platz # 23.... ja.... jeder hat schon das album ......
******
stark
*****
wenn man in der richtigen Stimmung ist, ist der Song sehr gut. Man muss allerdings schon ein wenig depressiv sein
****
Ich bin so gut wie nie depressiv ;-)
****
Leider nur ø !!! Die Platte stand auch nur 5 Wochen in die Holländische Top 40 !!!
*****
Hatte bessere, aber tönt gut.
******
Sehr schönes Lied!
****
... auch schön ...
****
Gut...
****
Gut.
******
war die bereits 7te (!!!) single aus born in the usa..eine geniale ballade..
*****
5 Kodukoha meeleolu tuleb kohe peale
*****
Ruhig, fast zart, dazu ein guter Text.
****
gut
***
3+
******
Für mich der beste Song aus "Born In The USA". Vielleicht, weil er der persönlichte auf dem Album ist ...
*****
Privater, ausgefeilter Song. Abgerundete 4,5.

Edit: Nach mehrmaligem Hören wird es noch besser. Intelligente Lyrics, stark gesungen. Doch noch die fünf.
Last edited: 28.04.2007 15:41

Wow. und persönlich. Gänsehaut!
*****
...knapp keine sechs...
*****
Echt gut gelungen, ist auch das einzige Lied das ich von ihm mag... mit dem Text haben wir uns mal im Englischunterricht genauer beschäftigt und seit dem mag ich den Song.

Vllt. ein bissel doll genuschelt ;)

...prima...
*****
sehr gut
*****
kommt nicht ganz an i´m on fire ran, aber fast
*****
Schöner ruhiger Titel, echt gelungen
*****
Kommt zwar nicht ganz an den anderen ruhigen Song dieses Albums heran ("I'm On Fire"), ist aber auch sehr schön. Klare 5*.
*****
stelle gerade fest, dass mir doch sehr viele Songs (frühere) vom Boss sehr gut gefallen
*****
Wieder so ein ruhige, "Bossige" Nummer!
******
Sehr Gut!
******
Einfach wunderschön. The Boss eine Klasse für sich!
*****
sehr gut
*****
Sehr schöne Ballade, nur knapp an der sechs vorbei. In 12/85 USA #6
*****
genialer Klassiker
*****
Stark. Ganz egal ob Text, Song oder Interpretation.
Leuchtende 5 Sterne.
*****
Und zum Abschluss nochmal eine wunderschöne, nachdenkliche Ballade. Stark!
*****
Schöne Ballade, die als letzter Track auf dem "Born In The U.S.A."-Album ausgewählt wurde. Im Vergleich zu allen anderen Songs auf diesem Album dennoch der schwächste Song.
*****
unter allen Umständen beeindruckend
*****
wunderschön und mit erinnerungsbonus...
****
Dutch Radio 2 Top 2000 notering in 2007 (0281)
**
das klingt schon wie die veröffentlichungen aus den letzten jahren von ihm
****
Destijds vond ik het een langdradige saaie plaat, maar nu na 23 jaar ben je zelf ook wat volwassener en kun je de plaat beter begrijpen. Als 13-jarige kun je sommige platen nu eenmaal nog niet "voelen"......
****
Nicht schlecht, aber unendlich langweilig.
****
Buena.
******
das ist geile musik
*****
Een schitterend lied over het geboortedorp. Goed werk van 'the Boss'.
****
Knapp 4*. Doch etwas einschläfernd.
***
...
******
Super Song von Bruce
*****
feine Ballade mit Heimatgefühlen
*****
Ruhiger, schöner, nachdenklicher Abschluss des Albums,
bei der gegenwärtigen Wirtschaftslage der USA wird ihm
der Stoff für derartige Songs mit Sicherheit nicht so
schnell ausgehen....
****
Nett. 4+

Good song.
****
angenehm zu lauschende Ballade aus Mitte der 80er – 4+…
******
a real nice heartfelt track. i love it!
******
Tolle Ballade und grandioser Abschluss des Born in the USA-Albums
*****
Wahrlich nachdenklich. Ein schöner, zeitloser Abschluss von "Born in the USA".
******
Super Song vom "Boss"
****
plätschert ein wenig so dahin, knapp noch passabel...
*****
Mooie autobiografische plaat van Bruce.
***
Langweillig!
****
"I was eight years old and running with a dime in my hand
Into the bus stop to pick up a paper for my old man
I'd sit on his lap in that big old Buick and steer as we drove through town
He'd tousle my hair and say son take a good look around this is your hometown"

Eine Ode an den Untergang einer amerikanischen Kleinstadt. Schön gemacht!
****
Nice song.
******
Briljante artiest.
******
Trauriger Song über die Heimtstadt, die man vermutloich trotz allem immer lieben wird.
*****
...trotz tiefer Melancholie ein wunderbarer Song...
******
goed
******
... wunderbar, super, großartig, genial ....
****
... gut ... 4+ ...
****
Topplåt av the Boss. Fin melodi....
****
Schöner ruhiger LP Abschluß. 4+
*****
das ist ein 5* Song
*****
richtig
*****
Awesome track.
***
Naja, etwas langweiilige Ballade. *3+
****
muss man in der richtigen Laune hören, dann passt es.
******
6 stars
*****
sehr schönes Lied!
******
Wirklich sehr sehr schön. Ich konnte Bruce Springsteen früher so gar nicht leiden und versuche das heute mal ganz unvoreingenommen zu betrachten.
****
Standardballade

*****
schöne Ballade
****
Nettes Lied! 4,5.
*****
Auch eine schöne Ballade, obwohl "I´m on Fire" schon die schönere war! Trotzdem vergebe ich noch eine knappe 5!
*****
Der Boss kanns auch ruhiger angehen, starke Ballade
****
prima song
****
sehr schönes Lied!
****
