Late Night Music Club With U2 And Bruce Springsteen

It's hard enough to cover Ben E. King, let alone Ben E. King doing his greatest hit-- and after John Lennon already did an amazing version. But in 1987 U2 was in Philly and Bruce Springsteen joined them onstage to do a version. It may not be as powerfully emotive as the original but it does the trick. It always strikes me as a very patriotic song these days when we all have to stand together against such a clear and present danger.

What's the clear and present danger? Win an Impeach Cheney cap if you have the best answer. Send it to
