Among the songs he tackles are the Commodores' “Nightshift,” The Walker Brothers' “The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" and the Four Tops' “When She Was My Girl."

Other covers are “I Wish it Would Rain” by The Temptations and “Someday We'll Be Together” by Diana Ross and The Supremes.

Hard to go wrong with songs like that but it is possible to trash classics.

Roxy Music’s ‘Jealous Guy’ one of the worst I’ve heard. Never liked Jimi Hendrix’s ‘All along the Watchtower’ either.

Marvin Gaye’s ‘Heard it through the Grapevine’ a classic.

Great songs, but I won't be wasting a penny on buying anything made by Springsteen.

I agree with the second part of that statement

When I was a young teenager, Motown was for me. Had loads of those 45 rpm.

Oh yes. The heyday was before my time but the music is some of the best ever made.

I’m not a Springsteen fan but I might give this a go. I liked his album of folk covers.

Well, I'll listen to it at least once just to see how he does it. There is no way he can perfect already perfect songs, but it's always interesting to see others' interpretations, and even though the original is usually better in most cases, you can still get decent alternatives. Not a big Springsteen fan, but he is The Boss, after all, and like I said, could be okay. You won't see me buying it, but with Apple Music I'll hear it eventually without having to.

Let’s hope he doesn’t turn these classics into trash and become “The Loss Boss”

No thanks. Love Motown. Maybe for the Bruce fans, but still…the screen door slams, Mary her dress sways. Like vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays. Roy Orbison singing for the lonely………

Springsteen has always been a huge booster of Detroit music, a fan of Mitch Ryder and Bob Seger, both of whom were influenced by Motown early on. I am sure his covers will be good. Maybe not breaking any new ground, but good enough.

He is the Boss!

I loved Springsteen in the late 80's during the worst era of music until present day.

But he hasn't produced one decent album since Born in the USA.

It happens. A musical artist has only so much in him and usually becomes an oldies act after the age of 35.
