Watch Divine Fits Cover Springsteen’s “Hungry Heart”
Bruce Springsteen’s “Hungry Heart” is one of those songs that will continue to turn arenas into pits of ecstasy until long after we’re all dead. When I saw Springsteen a couple of months ago, he played that song second, stage-dove during it, and then played for another three hours. That guy! In a recent session for the Australian radio network Triple J, the Britt Daniel/Dan Boeckner/Sam Brown supergroup Divine Fits played their version of the song, stripping it down to acoustic instruments (plus one electronic doohickey). Daniel’s vocal suited the song surprisingly well, and I like how Brown’s drum set consisted of a maraca and a shoebox. Watch it below.
