It’s not like Bruce Springsteen has to learn a song about Berlin just because he’s playing Berlin, but that kind of dedication and attention to detail is what makes him probably our greatest remaining stadium star. At last night’s Berlin show, Springsteen busted out a cover of “When I Leave Berlin,” a song from the British folksinger Wizz Jones. The crowd’s roar of recognition — or maybe just its roar at hearing its own city’s name — is a heartening thing. Watch video of the cover below.

Springsteen makes the best faces.
