Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Hungry Heart’ Covered By Divine Fits

Subscribe to WWMJ Ellsworth Maine on

It’s been a busy past few days for lovers of Bruce Springsteen‘s skill as a songwriter. On Friday (Feb. 8), a wide variety of artists paid tribute to the Boss at the MusiCares 2013 Person of the Year award. Now, indie group Divine Fits has tackled ‘Hungry Heart.’

The cover was recorded for Australia’s triplejtv’s long-running ‘Like a Version’ series. Before the song, singer Britt Daniel talks about having seen Springsteen live, while the DJ mentions that Springsteen is touring Australia in March. It will be his first time Down Under since 2003.

With the exception of a few minor lyric slip-ups, it’s a stripped-down, but faithful, take on ‘Hungry Heart.’ Originally written for the Ramones, Springsteen decided to keep it for himself, and brought in Flo and Eddie from the Turtles to help out on vocals. It became his first Top 10 hit, reaching No. 5 in 1980.

Divine Fits are an indie supergroup that released their first album, ‘A Thing Called Divine Fits,’ to great acclaim last summer. Britt Daniel is the frontman for Spoon, which has been recording since 1996, while Dan Boeckner has been in Handsome Furs and Wolf Parade.
