Bruce Springsteen: A small favor

OK, Boss. I see you ignored my plea to include Utah in your Working on a Dream Tour. Fair enough. Can't say as I blame you, really, seeing as how Salt Lake City was the only town you failed to sell out in something like three decades. I agree: we suck.

Here's the deal. Since you won't come to us, we'll come to you. We're headed to Denver for the show on Friday night and, well, I have just a small request or two...

See, it's the missus' first live Springsteen show. It's her Boss baptism, if you will. And I'd like it to be extra-special because, well, I've sort of guaranteed her that seeing The Boss live is better than anything you can find in church or in the bedroom. 

So, if I might be so bold, I thought I'd write out your set list for Friday's show -- you know, just to save you the trouble. Feel free to change the order, but don't fuck with the songs, OK? And none of that acoustic Born in the USA stuff, either.

  1. Badlands
  2. Radio Nowhere
  3. Good Eye
  4. Born in the USA
  5. War
  6. The Rising
  7. Mary's Place
  8. Ain't Got You
  9. Lonesome Day
  10. Without You
  11. Thunder Road
  12. Jungleland
  13. Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out
  14. Ghost of Tom Joad
  15. Better Days
  16. Viva Las Vegas
  17. Promised Land
  18. Chimes of Freedom
  19. Oh Mary Don't You Weep
  20. Sherry Darling
  21. Glory Days
  22. Bobby Jean
  23. No Surrender
  24. I Wish I Were Blind
  25. Because the Night
  26. Jersey Girl
  27. Livin' in the Future
  28. The Wrestler
  29. Born to Run
  30. Working on a Dream
  31. The Land of Hope and Dreams

Oh, and how about you work up a cool Chuck Berry medley? I'd appreciate that.

See you on Friday night!

Your pal,
