Springsteen Covering “Royals” by Lorde

“I drive a Cadillac in my dreams” isn’t that far out of the man’s oeuvre, now, is it? Or songs about poor kids breaking out of their small town existence?

This cover is blowing my mind. All week we’ve been debating Crowded House and Split Enz (and this could happen now that Neil Finn is going to tonight’s show) but we also walked around saying, “There’s no way he’d do a ‘Royals’ cover” and yet, here it is.
