Ryan Adams covers Springsteen for Radio 1 – Watch

Some other nice clips on the bigger BBC site, and you don’t need to be 13 to watch them. Billboard reports: “In anticipation of BBC Radio 6’s celebration of the year 1994, singer-songwriter Ryan Adams covered one of the year’s biggest hits, Bruce Springsteen’s “Streets of Philadelphia,” in the 6 Music Live Lounge. “Streets of Philadelphia,” written for the 1993 film Philadelphia, won an Academy Award for best original song, as well as four Grammys, including song of the year, best rock song, best male rock vocal performance and best song written specifically for a motion picture or for television. 

The stripped-down acoustic version of the synth-driven tune was a perfect fit for Adams, whose latest album Prisoner is easily comparable to Springsteen’s older releases.

Check out the cover below. BBC’s 1994 Day will take place Friday on the 6 Music website.”
