Bruce and the E street Band: because the night : Patti Smith original
http://youtu.be/HcqUSi8QPN0



Nope, Bruce Springsteen wrote that song initially.  I believe they were sharing a studio at the time and he wasn't happy with it so she did a recording of it.  He's performed it live quite a few times.

Ah now - this is a tough one. Its listed as a co-written song between them and although he recorded first he was unsatisfied and never released it. She did release it first, and then he released it after. so cover or not is entirely up to you.

I always loved that the water boys used it as an opening to the pan within couldn't call this one a cover I don't think, have a listen: http://youtu.be/_mAoCLgSrW4

It would be a bit of a joke if ND made the play-offs if there are any other one loss SEC teams left besides the conference champions.

the consensus seems to be that they'd need Oregon to lose in order to make the play offs

he is struggling, but I would say he is unlikely he didn't get the hat trick today. Both OGs were tap ins for him, and the shocker he missed would have been in if he'd already been on the score sheet...

In short, he would have got a hat-trick only he didn't  ;D

Exactly!

so Mother teresa vs Bill Gates. Save a few hundred people, or save millions of lives- who is a better person?

And on what basis do you make that judgement?


http://www.nytimes.com/2008/01/13/magazine/13Psychology-t.html

Is it better to do the right thing for the wrong reason or wrong thing for right reason etc ?

How do you know the reasons?

17 year old Jordan Rossiter just scored in his debut been at the club since the U-6 level. Fowler called him out last January as the new Stevie G. No pressure. But that's not a bad way to start, even it is was a howler of a goalie mistake, against Boro, in the Carling Cup....
