XPN’s Gotta Hear Song of the Week: “Busload of Faith” by Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band


Bob Seger

Classic rocker Bob Seger has released a cover of Lou Reed’s “Busload of Faith.” The song is from his forthcoming album, I Knew You When, out on November 17th.

The original “Busload of Faith” was on Lou Reed’s 1989 album, New York. On his version of it, Seger takes liberties with some of the original lyrics, in one case replacing the line “you can’t depend on the churches / unless there’s real estate that you you want to buy” with “you can’t depend on the president / unless there’s real estate that you want to buy.”

The song is not yet available on any streaming services or to purchased; however, you can watch a live performance of the song, and the original by Lou Reed.
