Bruce Springsteen – Born In The USA
Bruce Springsteen is an American singer, songwriter, and musician. He has released twenty studio albums, many of which feature his backing band, the E Street Band. Originally from the Jersey Shore, he is one of the originators of the heartland rock style of music, combining mainstream rock musical style with narrative songs about working class American life. Widely regarded as one of the greatest songwriters of all time, Springsteen has been called a “rock ‘n’ roll poet” who “radiated working-class authenticity”. Often described as cinematic in their scope, Springsteen’s lyrics frequently explore highly personal themes such as individual commitment, dissatisfaction and dismay with life in a context of everyday situations. Springsteen’s themes include social and political commentary and are rooted in the struggles faced by his own family of origin. According to Acclaimed Music, he is the 5th most celebrated artist in popular music history. Born in the U.S.A. is his seventh studio album, released by Columbia Records on June 4, 1984. The album’s music was written by Springsteen and recorded with his E Street Band and producers Chuck Plotkin and Jon Landau at The Power Station and The Hit Factory in New York City. Born in the U.S.A. was met with positive reviews and massive commercial success. It produced seven top-10 hit singles and became his most commercially successful album and one of the highest-selling records ever.
