Springsteen Does Excellent Cover of 'Royals,' Kind of Knows the LyricsMark Shrayber3/01/14 2:51pmFiled to: In a torn up townin a torn up town416EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkI mean, this man can wield a harmonica, but the lyrics aren't just "in a torn up town, in a torn up town." And don't even try to hold it in when he gets to the chorus, because that is some awkward phrasing. Is it intentional, or is he just trying to remember how that lightning-fast barrage of words goes? (I love to sing this song but when I get to the part where I'm supposed to be talking about Maybachs and Grey Goose I just start wailing aaaaaah kind of in tune.) Also: he's no Puddles when it comes to this song.
