Thanks Marc. I was at one of those MSG shows in the summer of 2000 and I remember loving 'Land of Hopes and Dreams' that night, too. I do think it is one of his very best. I've never actually tried to come up with my own personal top 10, but I suspect it might well make the list. Cheers.

LAND OF HOPE AND DREAMS IS BY FAR THE MOST UP-LIFTING SONG THAT I'VE EVER HEARD. IT BRINGS ME TO NEW HEIGHTS EVERY TIME I LISTEN TO IT. THE MOST BEAUTIFUL VERSION WAS THE ONE THAT BRUCE AND THE E STREET BAND PERFORMED LIVE FROM MADISON SQ GARDEN IN 2000. WHILE I AM NOT A RELIGIOUS MAN I FIND MYSELF CLOSE TO THE LORD WHEN I HEAR IT. I WANT IT PLAYED AT MY PASSING.

A beautiful, inspiring selection!
I really enjoy your blog, and the comments of fellow readers.
Happy New Year -- and keep up the good work!

The second time I heard Land of Hope and Dreams was in Houston in 2002. I had always wondered what Christians meant when the were taken by the Spirit, and this song was when I found out. At the beginning of the second verse, a wave of heat started at the top of my head and rolled through my body and I burst into tears.

I love this song. I love your blog. I don't comment much, but I just love the weekly reminders, and I appreciate you sharing. Happy New Year.

On the reunion tour, "If I Should Fall Behind" was always a poignant moment in the show. It showed the solidarity and the brotherhood of the BAND was back. "Land of Hope and Dreams" still gives me chills because Bruce was letting us know he was taking us ALL along for the ride, (and it may be a long one). Every night when he said, "See ya on down the road", we knew he meant it. Thanks for putting these up. Happy New Year!
