[video] Check Out This Awesome Cover of Springsteen's 'Born to Run'
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Seems like the perfect followup to last week's Taylor Swift Loves Bruce Springsteen, but Millennials Hate Him.
Add the Indie pop band Fun. to the list of millennial performers who clearly love Springsteen. Thanks to Twitter follower @mr3y for alerting me to Fun.'s "Born to Run" cover Saturday night at the Santa Barbara Bowl:
As of Sunday morning, there wasn't a quality YouTube of that particular performance available, but these two, one from earlier this summer in New York City and the other from last week in Colorado, work just as well. (I prefer the quality of the Colorado version). It's interesting that Fun. have been opening for Tegan and Sara, who have covered "Dancing in the Dark." They also performed one of their songs, "Closer," last month at Staples Center in LA with Taylor Swift, who also has an affinity for Springsteen, and has covered DITD. It all sort of comes together, offering support to the notion that Springsteen is, easily, one of the most relevant "old-school acts" for a considerable number of today's top music superstars across genres and fan bases. Now I just have to stop kicking myself for not going to see Fun. and Tegan and Sara play the Greek Theater for two nights last week in Los Angeles.
