In “No Surrender”, the dreams and promises of which Springsteen had been suspect of for so long are welcome friends once again. And if a statement like “We learned more from a three-minute record, baby, then we ever learned in school” is outrageous, well, so is “All you need is love.” Sometimes, willful naivete can get you through the day when reality is too harsh. “No Surrender” is, in many ways, a big ball of naivete, and no less thrilling for it.

Looking through this thread, Tougher Than The Rest seems a popular choice. Let's have another one.

I notice a trend in most of these covers. Slow it down, pour on the emotional angst, be very serious. Not a lot of rockin' women here. I suppose if you already have a musical connection to any of these women I can see why their covers would have some appeal but to me they're kind of generic. Not bad by any means but nothing I can get a hold on to.

That’s my least favorite voice in music. It goes right through me.

Jennifer Nettles has a class voice man, haven't heard her sing something I didn't like.

Funny. I haven’t heard her sing anything that didn’t make my skin crawl. It’s the over-the-top drawl that does it.

Why has nobody mentioned Aretha Franklin’s version of Pink Cadillac with Clarence??

Or Patti Smith’s version of Because the Night? That version preceded Bruce’s release of the song.

Or even The Pointer Sister’s version of Fire?
