I liked it, smooth and cool....Legend was cool too.
The song was written to express extreme frustration evoking emotion of being stuck in the mud while the tire spins you deeper and deeper into a world of shit and John Legend did not evoke that raw emotion.
I used to hate the guy because of his name. It was everywhere and I never heard his music. John Legend. What an egotistical, deplorable fuck. Then, after a while I figured that maybe he wasn't so pompous to call himself a "Legend". I mean if the guy's born with that name, what can he do? I let it slide. Then today I hear that it's his stage name. Fucking cunt child protege takes the name legend? Fuck him all over again.
Love Springsteen. Never heard of Legend before. Expected a douche. Thought the version of the song was great.
No. It was bad and not indicative of the way Bruce meant it to be portrayed. There was no hard emotion behind the perforrmance. The gentle piano did not take me where I needed to go. I feel nothing. What the fucks a frush
