Now, in my defense, not many six year-olds have the musical knowledge to even know what a cover is, let alone that that hit on the radio is one. It wasn’t until a decade later that I realized “Blinded By The Light” was written by Bruce Springsteen. It took me two or three listens of the Bruce Springsteen original before I put two and two together. Plus the Manfred Mann cover hit #1 in the U.S. in 1977, Springsteen’s cover never charted.
