January is shaping up to be a pretty big month for Springsteen fans the world over. His brilliant song, "The Wrestler", brought home the Golden Globe Award for Best Song last weekend. The man kicked off the "We Are One" Obama inaugural celebration with a performance on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. His 16th studio album, "Working On A Dream", will be released January 27th. And the month will come to an end with everything culminating on February 1st, when Bruce and the E Street Band will play the halftime show at Superbowl 43 in Tampa, FL.
To help celebrate what might go down as the biggest month in the history of E Street, we here at seanmcallum.com will be paying tribute to the man and the band with periodic samplings of some of his finest moments.

Choosing one of these over any of the others would be like asking a mother to choose one of her children over the others. An impossible task. Call it a four-way-tie.
