Thanks for putting that together.

It’s quite a body of work methinks.

:D The fact that Dancing in the Dark got twice as many points as There Goes My Miracle kind of undermines everything about this poll, quite frankly

Sort of - ultimately the poll probably is broadly right, in that his greatest work was the earlier work, and the very best are at or near the top, small details aside. Actially that (that they are broadly right) has probably been true of all these polls done either by me or fange.
The problem is that very few people vote, although I appreciate Bruce is not as widely popular as say Bowie or the Stones. But thanks to everyone who did vote!

I was pleased to find Drive all night so high. I think it is fantastic, but it is a candidate for difficult listening hour

I came up with several different comebacks to this but decided "smartarse" was the easiest to type.
