The theme of this spirited cover (from Springsteen's new LP, due January 14th) is bedrock Bruce – the struggle for love and prosperity in a nation where, as original songwriter Tim Scott McConnell put it, "you pay for everything." The revelatory beat merges Caribbean percussion, New Orleans swing and Bo Diddley stomp, topped with scorched-earth wah-wah guitar from Tom Morello. It's music that pushes past desperation into the rotten heart of Saturday night.
