tunes i like tuesday: i'm going down

Okay.... Tunes I Like Tuesday... The Wednesday Edition.


Since it's Wednesday and I blew it for yesterday, here's something a little different.  Two versions of the same song.  I know a lot of people love The Boss. Me? Not so much.  Yes he does a few songs I like (especially his 1982 release Nebraskabut I never quite "got him".  The first time I heard this cover by Vampire Weekend, I was sold.  It's a great take on one of Bruce Springsteen's classics.  Needless to say, I like it so much better than the original.  What about you?






PS: It's snowing its butt off here.  I am sure my kids will be home tomorrow.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I will be too. Gotta love them snow days.

  1. I really like both versions, but the Vampire Weekend one REALLY speaks to me (as I search for it on itunes)

  2. Hello City Mouse and Happy New Year! So glad to see you have linked up to Sunday Song-thanks for joining in.

    Now, about this song, I am not really a fan of Springsteen (my hubby thinks I am blaspheming when I say this!) so the second version is definitely the better one for me.

    Hope that the snowy weather wasn't too bad for you on Wednesday. It's so starnge to read that as we actually had a "stinking" hot day over here!

    Best wishes,
    Natasha.

  3. Maybe you had to be a guy that grew up in the 1970s? I don't know. Springsteen was my Dylan (except I could understand the lyrics).
    Listening to his music was so meaningful to me.
