[ # ] You can hear Bruce Springsteen’s soul on Nightshift
October 14th, 2022 under Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen is called The Boss because he is The Boss. His songs and his voice on them are one of a kind. They reached everybody from the working class to the elite, and that is why everybody likes them.

However, on his new album, Only The Strong Survive, he is singing songs by legendary Soul and Motown artists. One of those tunes is The Commodores’ Nightshift from 1985.

Today, the singer released his music video for the single, and we have never seen or heard him like this before. It is like at the age of 73; he finally found out this is the performer that he was meant to be.

Look at the way he comes alive differently than he has in the past. Not that there is anything wrong with his original stuff and how he performed them. But look at who he is here, and don’t tell me you don’t see how happy he is in the moment.

The transformation is incredible, and I can’t wait to hear the rest of the album on November 11th.

Now, back to the Nightshift. I just listened to the original version, and Bruce’s cover is actually better. I didn’t think it would be because the original is powerful on its own since it was a tribute to the recently deceased Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson. But Springsteen made it better by making it his own.

Gotta love an artist that can reinvent himself in his 70s! But then again, we are talking about Bruce.
