The Metaphor Gets More Complicated When A Lady Sings It

Hot Damn. Why is this special not available on DVD?

This is really pretty amazing, from the Art or Bust TV Special in 1984. Now, I do like Lady Gaga, but it should be pointed out that Bette was rocking this square dress 2 years before she was born.

According to the internets, Bette recorded this track for the No Frills album, but Springsteen wouldn't let her use it, saying her version was too girly. Instead, she went with "Beast of Burden," and we know how that turned out. Maybe all that time in bed with Bowie made Mick Jagger more comfortable with his sexuality.
