Video Spotlight: "Poor Poor Pitiful Me"/"Cadillac Ranch"



I've been on a big Warren Zevon kick lately, and enjoying it immensely.  Bruce and Warren Zevon were no strangers, as previously discussed on this blog.  But I found this video on YouTube, and really loved it.  What's really cool about it is Warren covering a Bruce song in Jersey, a gutsy move in and of itself, but not even a hit single, instead a deep track off The River.  And he pulls it off!  Listen to the crowd reaction when "Cadillac Ranch" starts up, they recognize the song and immediately get into it and start singing and dancing along.  Awesome stuff.
