Glen Hansard (Feat. Eddie Vedder) - Drive All Night


Do you like Singer/Songwriters, or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!

Glen Hansard (feat. Eddie Vedder) - "Drive All Night" (2013)
Christmas was a time of over indulgence and it was in between scoffing mince pies and drinking mulled wine that I discovered this gem.  It is a cover of Bruce Springsteen's, "Drive All Night", from his masterpiece The River.  Hansard recruited Eddie Vedder on background vocals, Joe Henry and the late Clarence Clemons nephew, Jake, to play Saxophone.  Hansard & Vedder are no strangers to working together as the close friends played together on an acoustic tour last year and Hansard dueted with Vedder on "Sleepless Nights" from his 2011 album, Ukulele Songs.    Give it a few turns and it will get you listening all night.

The title reminds me of when I first met my wife.  She lived a few hours away and under the influence (of love), I would drive after to work to see her then early in the morning I'd head back to work.  The things you do....

I could imagine listening to this late at night driving home with the rain bouncing off of the wind.

Great version could top the origin from as you say the brilliant River.
