Meh, Springsteen doesn't have anything on Puddles the clown.
 
2014-03-01 02:32:21 PM  
That was horrible.
 
2014-03-01 02:35:58 PM  
Pedestrian.

/nice gesture though
 
2014-03-01 02:38:21 PM  
Well, that was a farking pile of crap.
 
2014-03-01 02:39:50 PM  
I had a dream last night(no shiat) I heard a news story Bruce Springsteen had passed away.
 
2014-03-01 02:40:23 PM  

yyrkoon: That was horrible.


Open-air, a cell phone microphone with terrible frequency response, half a mile from the stage, and lots of crowd noise to drown out everything subtle about an acoustic performance... yeah, it sounds muddy and jumbled.

i'd love to hear him do that in a better setting. I think he could rock it if you could actually  hearit.

God dammit, Fark. Fix your bloody formatting buttons.
 
2014-03-01 02:41:09 PM  
That was terrible, but had I been there (and wasted), I would've appreciated it.
 
2014-03-01 02:41:50 PM  
C'mon Bruce, you're better than that.
 
2014-03-01 02:43:31 PM  
The clown is better.

Hungary 1968. That's what's going on.
 
2014-03-01 02:46:36 PM  
i wanted to like that more than i actually-liked it.

Glad to see this was covered. Loves me some Postmodern Jukebox.

brantgoose: Hungary 1968. That's what's going on.


...and raise you 1948
 
2014-03-01 02:52:11 PM  
i lasted 30 seconds but i skipped 10 of those.  gads, that was bad.
 
2014-03-01 02:54:32 PM  
Terrible. But I'm hoping that he heard the song once a week before and he's just improvising.
 
2014-03-01 03:26:37 PM  
That was farking terrible, id be a bit annoyed if i went to a concert and time was wasted singing a super shiat version of someone elses song.

LewDux: brantgoose: Hungary 1968. That's what's going on.

...and raise you 1948


Yep that revolution of 1948 was really intense......
 
2014-03-01 03:30:22 PM  
Lousy performance of a lousy song. Meh.
 
2014-03-01 03:36:29 PM  
worst cover ever

Here in Europe 100 years means nothing. We had war that lasted 156 years, we call it Hundred Year War

He said that's just the way it is and he was born to be wild. Then he said he'd kick anybody's ass that didn't like it cause he's Bruce Lee.
 
2014-03-01 04:05:14 PM  
Clown: 1
Springsteen: 0
 
2014-03-01 04:07:15 PM  
I'm pretty sure my instantaneous gag reflex upon reading the headline has save me from offending my ears.
 
2014-03-01 04:11:02 PM  
Who cares about a mediocre baseball team?

/sorry G.Brett
 
2014-03-01 04:33:24 PM  
That song requires utter aloofness and studied boredom. The Boss is far too earnest. Cobain on the other hand would have nailed it.
 
2014-03-01 05:10:35 PM  

Atomic Spunk: C'mon Bruce, you're better than that.


No, actually he's not.
 
2014-03-01 05:26:39 PM  

had98c: Lousy performance of a lousy song. Meh.


If you think that royals is a "lousy" song you have shiat taste.

CaptainBeefheart: had98c: Lousy performance of a lousy song. Meh.

Really, the song you're going to use as a measure of good taste is Royals? Because it's such an amazingly well crafted and executed song that anyone who doesn't like it has bad taste? Royals?

I have no idea what's going on in Crimea, so here's Bruce Springsteen covering Royals

Oobama is on the boards?!?
 
2014-03-01 06:02:10 PM  
Well, subby, at least you and the president have something in common....http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/obama-skips-national-se curity-team -meeting-russia-ukraine_783659.html
 
2014-03-01 06:24:59 PM  
Was a pretty good concert - Jimmy Barnes opened, then BS played for nearly 3 hours, so lot better value than some of those dudes in '60's
 
2014-03-01 07:26:08 PM  
Springsteen farking sucks.

what is the saying? In Europe 100 years is not long while in America 100 miles is not far?

Dear Bruce,
Perhaps you should pay attention to the signs on your current road tour...
