I think you should meet up with him and offer him the straight choice between the 2, I think he'd change his mind once he saw the large tabasco bottle.

Back on track, my vote for the best cover of a Springsteen song wouldn't go to FGTH's version of Born to Run (obvs) but to this:
Patti Smith -- Because the Night
OK, maybe not technically a cover, since Springsteen's original version wasn't released at the time; it was laid down during the sessions for Darkness on the Edge of Town in 1977/78 and only released in a mucked-about form on The Promise in 2010. Sad to say, the version on The Promise isn't great, and if you've heard the Boss perform it live, you'll know how poor this studio version is. And also how much better the Boss can do it than Patti ...
This train … carries saints and sinners / This train … carries losers and winners / This train … carries whores and gamblers / This train … carries lost souls.
I'll take my chances
Back on topic...and one from left-field...(I am in Sweden)
