Springsteen Covered - Fire
Yet another defeat for the Boss last week with the Jersey contingent of Johnny the Friendly Lawyer and Echorich being the most vociferous supporters of Southside Johnny's take on Talk to Me.
We are witnessing one of the greatest comebacks of all time a bit like when Liverpool were 3-0 down at half-tine in that European final and came back to win.
We have gone from The Boss 7 The Rest 2 to 8 apiece. Remarkable.
We are staying with tracks on The Promise more famously covered by other artists but with a slight twist.
I was going to post The Pointer Sisters version of Fire but I figured that would result in another trouncing for Bruce.
So I've gone for Link Wray instead. It may be closer but I suspect there is a lot of love out there for Link as well.
I'm going for Bruce if only to stop the rot.
Others may choose to disagree
Bruce Springsteen - Fire
Link Wray - Fire
