Springsteen Covered - Tougher Than The Rest
It's back! By popular demand the return of the interactive compare and contrast Covers series. This time round and again by popular demand (you know who you are!) the featured artist is Bruce Springsteen.
Like Dylan, the Boss has fans and those who can't stand him in equal measure so this could be fun. First to five or maybe even first to ten we'll see how we go.
Let's start with a fairly obvious one with Tougher than the Rest the biggest hit from Bruce's Tunnel of Love album from 1987.It's New Jersey versus Hull as the challengers are Everything But the Girl with their version from their 1992 Covers E.P.
Tunnel of Love for me is not one of his better albums and it is not one that I listen to all that often. For me the EBTG version is the superior one.
