Er ... OK, we will!

Er … OK, we will!

Here’s another in the series of posts spotlighting favorite Springsteen covers chosen by the Blogness staff. Check back in the next few days as we finish or picks and list the best covers suggested by our readers. This collection by Susan:
1. The Band/Atlantic City

I like the rootsy treatment the band gave to Atlantic City, and it reminds me of the later Seeger Sessions arrangement, which I thought was great.

2. Kenny Chesney/One Step Up

The song that made me realize that maybe Kenny Chesney was pretty good, after all. He sings it like he lived it.

3. Dar Williams/Highway Patrolman

I love Dar Williams’ voice, and think the effect of a female singing Joe Robert’s part is kind of cool and soulful.

4. The National/Mansion on the Hill

The first song I ever heard The National perform, and I thought Matt Berninger’s velvet voice was what it was all about. That was before I came to appreciate the bizarre and wonderful world of The National’s music.

5. Florence and the Machine ft. Kid Harpoon/Iím Goiní Down

Quirkiness all around, and I like it.

…and this bonus, a cover by Bruce that speaks to me today:

6. Dirty Water at Fenway Park, 8/14/12
