Alternative pop princess Lorde recently went to see the boss.
The star performed a stellar cover of the Bruce Springsteen gem “I’m On Fire.”
The dimmer-than-usual track was released as a single in the 80’s yet failed to reach the anthem status afforded to sibling tracks such as “Born In the USA.”
Artistically, one could argue that “I’m On Fire” tells a stronger story and is a one of Springsteen’s finest hours.
The somber tone was perfectly adapted by Lorde when she flipped it into a mash-up with her track “400 Lux.”
Performed in Christchurch, New Zealand which is a stop on her Melodrama world tour, the moment was awe-inspiring.
Lorde performed the track with her touring guitarist Ray Suen.
Those with long memories will recall that once upon a time, Springsteen covered Lorde’s first hit “Royals.”
