A Hot New Rent A Car

With Bruce Springsteen tied up in a lawsuit against his former manager Mike Appel, the E Street Band had enough time on their hands to record this Billy Joel cover with the former lead singer of The Ronettes, Teen Queen Ronnie Spector. Miami Steve Van Zandt produced the single and wrote the B side.

"Steve is the first guy since Phil that knows my voice and knows how to handle me," Ronnie said. "And it's amazing, because I never thought anybody could capture my particular sound on record again like Phil did, in the same way. But Steve did!"

The single should have been a hit, but wasn't.
