Your Tuesday Moment of Words Fail Me

From 2015, please enjoy British sibling act The Staves and their utterly astounding cover of Bruce Springsteen's "I'm On Fire."

My favorite comment over at YouTube: "These girls could make dogshit sound incredible."

Seriously -- I know sisterhood is powerful, but this is ridiculous.

Amen. If I wasn't old and ugly I would be in England, on my knees at their doorstep.

Again unable to skip the ad because the window cuts off the right half of the picture.

This is great. Not a huge Bruce fan. I think I have always enjoyed Bruce's music the most when it is a) interpreted by someone other than Bruce, or b) witnessed him doing it live. Bruce's recorded stuff just never gets me. Which I don't really mean as a criticism. Having tried and played/performed his stuff, it is extremely well crafted but basic. Just the sort of songs that artists can reinterpret successfully. And Bruce live - well, it is just something you have to see to believe. And he will make you a believer.

Just gorgeous, and reminds me of early McGarrigle Sisters, which is a very, very good thing.

What? This is a song about a creepy guy that really needs to beat off. The gorgeous harmonies don't fit at all. It's like the Lennon Sisters trying to rock. Sorry.
