Tonight, Tonight the Highway is Bright

For Wednesday, two great versions of the same song. “Racing in the Street” is a quintessential early Springsteen lyric. The first clip below was filmed 31 years ago at a show in Passaic, New Jersey. (When I watched it, the sound wasn’t perfectly synched up to the picture, but it’s still worth sharing.) The second clip is a cover by Patty Griffin, from a 1999 show at Fez, a New York club that sadly no longer exists. Griffin’s got one of my favorite voices, and with just that and a guitar she makes the song full. Enjoy:
