One of the best song writers ever

I feel this has more power, more passion, then Patti Smith's version. It could be because of the electric guitars, or Bruce's voice alone, but to me, the impact is greater.

Natalie Merchant with 10,000 Maniacs was sweet from the Unplugged back in the hey days of the early 90s. Hard to go wrong on this one.

Springsteen is a gifted songwriter and I like a few songs he performs. Once a friend called him "Draino Voice" and that sticks in my mind when I hear him sing. However, I have enjoyed most of his songs when performed by others: Manfred Mann's Earth Band, Patti Smith, 10,000 Maniac's, Johnny Cash, and the Pointer Sisters to name a few.

Written by Springsteen and Patti Smith, this is probably the best song either of them ever wrote. Pure gold!

This song was gift to Patti Smith from Bruce. They were recording in adjacent studios at the time ('77-'78).

A staple for Springsteen live -- has played it on most tours since Darkness; I enjoy the power of his version, yet I also enjoy the 10,000 Maniac's version; their version highlights the delicacy of lyric -- Springsteen' s the power of the music -- either way, an amazing rock song -- also interesting to note that U2 names it as the one song they wish they had written.

I hate to tell you, but I preferred hearing Patti Smith singing this romantic song. I used to search for this particular song by Patti Smith until I heard it once on Direct TV's music choise classic rock.

written by Patti Smith and Bruce Springsteen. . . f i r s t released by Patti Smith, made very popular by 10,000 maniacs. Springsteen never released a studio version, only commercial release by Springsteen comes from this his live release
