We’ve written about Joe Iadanza on this blog before so seeing his name again should not come as a surprise. What does come as a surprise though is the bold and downright kick-ass idea that Iadanza has concocted. In an effort to cope with COVID-19, he has crafted the ambitious 40 Days of Bruce. Yep, you read that right, 40 songs of Springsteen.

To date he has already recorded:
Born to Run
“My Hometown”
The Rising
“Darkness on the Edge of Town”
Dancing in the Dark
“Badlands”
Hungry Heart
“The River”
….and………
“Tenth Avenue Freeze-out” and that’s not even half of the first 20.

The second set of 20 includes:
Streets of Philadelphia
”Human Touch”
Brilliant Disguise
“I’m on Fire”
Backstreets

And yet his latest Springsteen cover, “Atlantic City” just might be the best of the bunch. Okay so we might be a bit biased being that Joe gave us a social media shoutout upon release, but really his take on this Nebraska gem is so perfectly suited for Iadanza it feels akin to cosmic brilliance. Whether Iadanza releases any or all remains to be seen. For now, we’re enjoying this YouTube playlist and patiently wait with fingers crossed that these releases go beyond social media. Heck, we’ll settle for Bandcamp for now.

As the COVID-19 pandemic rages on, we can all find solace in music and few artists are as solacing as Bruce Springsteen. Especially when his songs are sung by Roslyn’s Joe Iadanza. Take a listen below:
