Bruce Springsteen’s 1984 album Born In The USA was hugely successful, producing 7 Top 10 singles. The second single, Cover Me, was actually written by Bruce for Donna Summer, but he liked it too much, after recording the demo, to give it away. As a compromise, he gave her this hit single to record. You can definitely hear Springsteen’s influence, but it was a smart move giving it to Summer. She nails it.
