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.
