-->I remember coming home after I had been gone for three days, walking in the kitchen and my mother and father were sitting there and my dad said "where you been?" I said "[[TheVietnamWar I went to take my physical]]" He said "What happened?" I said "They didn't take me" And he said "That's good".

* HarsherInHindsight: 1974's "4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)," often simply called "Sandy," gained a distinctly dark undertone when Hurricane Sandy completely trashed Asbury Park in 2012 (although that happened closer to Halloween than the 4th). Sensitive to this, Bruce pointedly did not play that song at the post-Hurricane Sandy benefit concert that December.

* CreatorThumbprint: Springsteen incorporates imagery and metaphors related to amusement parks, fairgrounds and carnivals (he called one album ''Tunnel Of Love''). [[WriteWhatYouKnow Appropriate as it was the Jersey Shore where Bruce developed a following]] in TheSixties.

** An odd case with "Because the Night". He wrote it, then gave it to Music/PattiSmith, who rewrote some of the verses and released it as a hit single on her album ''Music/{{Easter}}''. He later released his version (which means his is ''technically'' the cover), and they are credited as cowriters. (To make things even ''more'' confusing, Springsteen and Smith often sing each other's version of the lyrics, or a blend of the two, for fun.)

This is what happens when two great singer-songwriters are good friends.)

He was the first to record "Blinded by the Light," a cover of which became the signature song of Manfred Mann's Earth Band.
