We all know Bruce Springsteen is the Boss but now he has dubbed himself “King Bee.” In his cover of “Royals” live in Auckland, New Zealand last night Bruce put a twist on the original version by changing “queen bee” to “king bee” most appropriately. This acoustic version is boss mostly because Bruce can do no wrong and I’m sure Lorde is digging it. c.
Thank goodness my ride to work this morning took as long as it did because had it not I would have kept driving Parkway South just to listen to the Beyonce birthday soundtrack that was blasting through the airwaves. Let me tell you how hard it is to pick one damn song to honor this woman. It’s hard. Instead of choosing one of her own, I’m choosing a song with a title is rather appropriate for such occasion, “Champagne and Reefer,” by Muddy Waters.
The coincidence is not in the title, but in the name of the album, King Bee. For some reason, both of the radio stations I listened to today referred to the birthday girl as King Bey. When did the Queen go King? When she did the Mrs. Carter tour? It’s no question that the woman definitely rules, so from one king to the other, happy beyday.
