Peak UK Chart Position: #11 in March 1992.
A man who has been in the business for just over fifty years, selling over 64 million albums in the US and over 120 million records worldwide, and winning 20 Grammy Awards out of 49 nominations; Bruce Springsteen turns 66 today.
Staggeringly, he has never had a number one single either on the American Billboard Hot 100 or in the UK (although he has had several US Rock chart number ones). The closest he has come in the US was “Dancing In The Dark”, peaking at number 2, whilst he also managed the same chart position in the UK with “Streets Of Philadelphia” (disappointingly held off the top spot by “Doop”).
“Human Touch” came from the album of the same name, which spent a week at number one in the UK early in April 1992. The single was number one in Norway and Spain, but only managed a couple of weeks at number 11 in the UK, and number 16 in America. Here’s a performance taken from May 22nd 1993, in concert at the National Bowl in Milton Keynes.
