Songs a GOY newbie should listen to

TL;DR: Hoping for some help with songs you’d suggest a GOY newbie listen to.

Full story: I was the guest this week on a Bruce Springsteen fan podcast. (It’ll be available in a couple weeks.) During the show, I talked quite a bit about GOY/Dave’s Bruce fandom, mentioned Diving Bell and Fear & Trembling, Dave covering I’m On Fire, etc.

The host sometimes does “Bruce newbie” shows where he has a casual Bruce fan listen to a bunch of songs and then come on the show to talk about likes/dislikes/thoughts/etc. And then the host tells him the story/facts of the songs the person listened to.

Well, in this case, he wants to flip that. I need to send him some GOY songs to listen to and then I’ll come back to his show in a month or two, I’ll be the host, and I’ll ask him for his thoughts on these GOY songs and also tell him about each song.

Should be really fun and a GREAT way to introduce GOY to some Bruce fans. So … what songs would you have this Springsteen fan listen to??
