Favorite Springsteen Cover Versions

Posted by
This great album by Harding includes two terrific Springsteen covers, one of which features the Boss himself on backing vocals.

After listing 50 of my favorite Springsteen songs, I decided to take a shot at one more list: 10 of my favorite Springsteen cover versions (at least as of today). Here they are:

1. “4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy),” The Hollies

2. “Atlantic City,” The Band

3. “Dancing in the Dark,” Ruth Moody*

4. “Downbound Train,” Smithereens

5. “Hearts of Stone,” Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes

6. “Jackson Cage,” John Wesley Harding

7. “Stolen Car,” Elliott Murphy

8. “Streets of Philadelphia,” Garland Jeffreys

9. “Talk to Me,” Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes*

10. “Wreck on the Highway,” John Wesley Harding (not entirely a cover, as Springsteen sings along)*

*These video versions are not my favorites but are the best I could find on YouTube

Got your own favorites? Please let me know.
