Brothers Under the Bridge

If someone'd asked me what Bruce Springsteen song David Lindley and Jackson Browne'd be most likely to cover, this wouldn't have been amongst my first 50 guesses. And yet it works beautifully. Obviously, Lindley can make pretty much anything sound good, but this straightforward take works, and Lindley's vocals fit the song perfectly, with spare but sweet harmonies from Browne. And, honestly, Lindley looks like he could be one of the characters in the song.

Come Veterans' Day I sat in the stands in my dress blues 
I held your mother's hand when they passed with the red, white and blue 
One minute you're right there 
Then something slips
