Drive All Night

I swear I'll drive all night just to buy you some shoes and to taste your tender charms; And I just wanna sleep tonight again in your arms ... (Bruce Springsteen - Drive All Night)

From 1973 through about 1984, Bruce Springsteen was a very prolific song writer. In 1980 The River, Bruce's great double album was released. The album was a great mix of rockers and ballads. One of those great unsung ballads was a song called Drive All Night. In this song, the singer yearns to see his girl; not promising to buy her the moon, but vowing to her that he would drive all night just to buy her some shoes. Nothing is going to stand in his way; not snow; not rain; not wind.

I was recently checking out and saw this cover of that song. This is one of the best Bruce covers that I have ever heard. Awesome...
