I like this version of this Aussie classic, but no matter who does a cover it always reminds us of that unique magic in original Easybeats performances that no one else can replicate.

Singing this song, Bruce introduces it to many young people who have never heard it before. I can appreciate that. He does OK but sounds strained and angry. The original song sung by the Easybeats was released in 1967 (?). The lead singer of the Easybeats, Stevie Wright sang this song with excitement and happiness! I watched another youtube video of Stevie Wright singing " Friday on My Mind " at a club in the U.S (1987). He still rocked it! Be at peace Stevie.💙

Bruce is paying tribute to rock icons of the country hosting. A polite and respectful guest.
He gets the Australian ethos and rock character.
Thanks Boss

when superstars like Springsteen do a cover of this you know its classic masterpiece

The E Streeters and Bruce are a human jukebox. Their collective love of classic pop, rock and soul runs so deep that they can play anything upon request. Combine all that with Bruce's outstanding original material, and these guys are a true American musical treasure. Never has been a better rock and roll band in concert and probably never will be.

Well if this turns the rest of the world onto this classic Oz Rock song I say, okay, the jobs done. George Young and Harry Vanda wrote this masterpiece - thanks so much guys!

The Boss takes a song and makes his own version. He does'nt take the the song to a new technical level but he makes the song "his own" filled with a blend of redemption and passion. He really moves me with this version and I feel very stimulated. It kind of made the song new to me and I thank you Bruce. This is PASSION and PERFORMANCE

This song is in any generation...and this is a great performance of the song.

He sounds like he means it Man, total conviction in this performance! I guess that's why they call him "The Boss". If every firm had a boss like Bruce the staff would get to work early!

Classic rock covered by bruce. For those who don't like it Bruce Springsteen wouldn't be who he was without classic rock he followed as a kid. This is arguably one of the most popular songs of that Era in the 60s.
