Blinded by the lyrics

I'm not a big fan of cover versions—how's that for a blanket statement?—but this one works for me.

Manfred Mann's Earth Band also did a good cover of Springsteen's Spirits in the night, which, like Blinded by the light, was from the album Greetings from Asbury Park. (Gosh, I'm enjoying wheeling my Bath chair along Memory Lane.)


Manfred Mann's Earth Band: Revved up like a deuce/another runner in the night.




Bruce Springsteen: Cut loose like a deuce/another runner in the night.

(Stick with this one. It winds up.)
