They'll be Dancing on the Shore
Frankie says - well that was close but the Boss just shades it.
By my calculation there were 7 votes for Bruce and 6 for Frankie for their versions of Born to Run. No votes for Suzi strangely.
So the series has now concluded with a final score of The Boss 10 The Rest 8.
If truth be told I'm somewhat relieved that it's over given that we were about to get into barrel scraping territory - Badly Drawn Boy with Thunder Road thankfully avoided.
Hope you enjoyed it. I know I did. A few Bruce diehards , a few Anyone but Bruce and those who bent both ways over the weeks.
I think I'll take a small break from the Covers series but rest assured it will return at some stage - perhaps with a slight twist!
I don't have many covered by Springsteen songs. But I will leave you with his version of Tom Waits' Jersey Girl and a traditional folk song made famous by Pete Seeger which features on We Shall Overcome - The Seeger Sessions
Bruce Springsteen - Jersey Girl
