The Daily Cut: Bruce Springsteen “She’s the One”

Bruce Springsteen: “She’s the One”

ALBUM: Born To Run

YEAR: 1975

WRITER: Bruce Springsteen

Only ever released as the B-side of “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out.”

What’s it like for E Street Band drummer Max Weinberg to play the Born to Run cut “She’s the One”? Tell ’em, Max. “I’d like to pose the musical question, ‘Have you ever tried to play a Bo Diddley beat for five minutes?’ Well, on ‘She’s the One’ this is exactly what I had to do. Now the Bo Diddley beat is a very important beat in rock ‘n’ roll. It’s sort of known as the universal rhythm and every rock drummer learns it as one of the first beats. And it was one of my favorite beats and Bruce had written this song ‘She’s the One’ and it kind of fit. And it’s tom-toms for days. And that’s one that I particularly enjoy playing in concert.”

On September 2nd, 1995, Bruce Springsteen performed an eight-song set at the Concert for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. All but two were covers. The originals were “Darkness on the Edge of Town,” and “She’s the One,” which he hadn’t performed in seven years.
