The first version, the only version of this song I ever knew, was the Springsteen version.

 

   

(Bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuce!!!)

 

 

Then I “discovered” Holly Cole’s reinterpretation and loved it even more than the original. I knew this was originally a Tom Waits song, but I had never heard his rendition.

 

   

   

I tried to listen to it – just couldn’t get through

more than a minute of it.

 

Oh – and there’s a servicable, perfectly fine Bon Jovi version as well.

 

   

 

   

 

(I still think Holly does it best, though)

This still mesmerizes me … December 5, 2010

 

I’ve looked at this at least 10 times and it still blows me away. Someone sent it out via twitter referencing just the Prince guitar riffs, but when I brought it up I saw Tom Perry, and later Jeff Lynne and Mark Knopfler. Very impressive.

 

The best part of me is checking out the young man just behind Tom Petty. As soon I saw him I was like “whoa – that kid has to be related to George Harrison”. It’s his son, Dhani, who’s the spitting image of him. I love seeing him playing his dad’s music with all these icons and his absolute joy on stage. It kind of gives me chills, in a good way.
