* "Racing in the Street" might be the saddest song ever written about drag racing. The last verse is particularly tear-jerking.

I pray the Devil to take me to stand at the fiery furnaces of Hell

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5-QMHFiIA4 This]] live version of "Blood Brothers" from the 2000 E Street Reunion Tour, especially when he chokes up while singing the last verse and holding hands with his bandmates. Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.

* Also, "Streets of Philadelphia". "The night has fallen/I'm lyin'awake/I can feel myself fading away/So receive me, brother, with your faithless kiss, or will we leave each other alone like this/On the streets of Philadelphia..."

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZ-Ifwiz6Zw Devil's Arcade]]".



** And then, right after the title track there's "Paradise", an utterly ''devastating'' piece about a suicide bomber.

* This troper thinks "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAjhHbtZyQU Johnny 99]]" is one of Springsteen's most depressing. The absolute despair in the song is tear-worthy every time.
* ''Shut Out the Light'' is an absolutely heartwrenching song about PTSD. While the protagonist of the song returned from the war alive, he is so broken, he could just as well be dead. Never fails to bring this troper to tears.

* "Drive All Night" will really get you, especially for anyone who's ever had a broken heart that just wouldn't heal.

And I wish God would send me a word
Send me something I'm afraid to lose
