But I've always liked that song a lot.
 
Ha, me, too. Who was it, do you know? I wonder how many viewers in the age group of the characters realize it was a Springsteen song.

I honestly thought it was the new Vampire Weekend song I haven't heard yet.

On the subject of end credits tunes, I haven't been able to listen to The Vaccines' Wreckin' Bar without thinking of the show since.

GAF, that we know! What we don't know is who did the cover.



EDIT: Good call, monkey. The cover is by Vampire Weekend. I just looked on HBO's "GIRLS" page.

Haha, my bad.

I agree with monkeyskin, it did sound a bit like Vampire Weekend.

It's a mystery that we will probably never solve.

Sames. That song is totes amaze #the_shosh

I was pretty certain that cover was by Vampire Weekend as well. Sounds like a studio recording; anyone know if it's an older b-side or did they specifically do it for Girls?

I feel like I should recognize Vampire Weekend when I hear them covering a Springsteen song. I guess I'm old. I guess Fitz is getting on up there, too.

Not necessarily: I don't really like VW. I don't have any of their stuff, so why would I recognize them? And I wasn't into Bruce when that song ORIGINALLY came out; I was still just a kid!


 
But all defensiveness aside: yes, (much to my irritation and sadness) I am getting up there too.

You just said a Missy Elliott lyric.

I don't know who that is.

BULLSHIT.
