Springsteen Video of the Week - One Headlight


OB's wondeful two-part article about the best covers of Springsteen and by Springsteen got me thinking of another category of Bruce songs - duets.  This video above, from the 1997 MTV Music Video Awards, is by far my favorite Boss duet.  Bill Simmons frequently talks about this clip, citing it as the moment of Bruce getting his "mojo" back.  After a few dud albums in the early 90s, Bruce was at his nadir of popularity.  However, when rocking out with Jakob Dylan, you can see him slowly morphing back into the beast he was in the previous decade.  This is one version of the song that I really wished they released as a single. 
Do you have a favorite Bruce duet that you think can top this?  Let me know in the comments!
