Friday March 3rd is 1994 day at BBC Radio 6. In celebration, the station has brought in singer-songwriter Ryan Adams to record a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Streets of Philadelphia.” Springsteen wrote the song for the 1993 Academy Award winning Tom Hanks film Philadelphia.
Adams, never one to shy away from a cover, sounds at home on the song. His style is reminiscent of the prolific artist’s earlier alt-country days. Watch Adams’ take, and of course Springsteen’s classic, below.
