Bruce Springsteen’s new album Magic was released this past Tuesday. In honor of the two shows in Philadelphia he’ll be performing tonight and tomorrow night, 5 songs that embody the “magic” Bruce has become renowned for. Up first, what may be the single most definitive version of any Springsteen song, Incident on 57th Street from February 1975, live at The Main Point in Philadelphia. A pair of songs from the 1978 tour, Growing Up complete with one of his famed storytelling interludes, and Prove It All Night with a blazing guitar workout intro. An amazing reworking of It’s Hard To Be A Saint In The City from closing night of the Devils and Dust tour, and a early breathtaking acoustic version of the song where the line “Show a little faith, there’s magic in the night” originated, Thunder Road from 1974.
