We Gotta Get Out Of This Place by Eric Burdon & The Animals

“1965 USA: Johnson was elected as president after filling in due to JFK assasination. Bloody sunday...civil rights. Malcolm X is assassinated. The Vietnam War...Martin Luther King & 25,000 civil rights activists march to the capitol. Gemini 3 launches the first US 2 person crew into orbit. Rex Harrison & My Fair Lady, Julie Andrews & Mary Poppins win Academy Awards. Draft cards are burnt in Berkeley California. Anti war protests. The Watts Riots in Los Angeles. Bob Dylan goes Electric, Jefferson Airplane debuts in San Francisco ,The Beatles perform the first stadium concert in the history of rock at Shea Stadium in New York. Sandy Koufax pitches a perfect game in a baseball match against the Chicago Cubs. Mariner 4 flies by Mars sending back the first images of the Red Planet. The war on poverty starts & Medicare and Medicaid are established...So much more happened in 1965 in the USA...So many ups & downs This song applied to so much that was happening we sang it like a mantra.”

About half way through Springsteen's 3 and a half hour gig in Cardiff on Tuesday night Eric Burdon ambled on stage and sang this with the E Street Band backing him. Very cool.   6
