    It lacks all the urgency and fury of the original.

    And that's okay, this is a cool take. I can only think of one artist/band that can do "faithful" covers and make them any good. Otherwise, a cover should be different.

    Oh, I agree that they should be different, but the urgency of the song is kind of the point. It's not "Baby, we were born to meander quietly and pleasantly."

    Thanks for posting. I really like the arrangement, playing and tone. No, it doesn't have the same feel as the original but Bruce has done a number of "less urgent" variations of the song himself. ;)

    I see what ya meant now. I got a bit of it from the dynamics so maybe that’s why I thought differently.

    If I didn't know the original, I'd like this more. It's interesting.
    Yes, thanks for posting it.
