As subway buskers go, this one’s pretty good.

Eighties rocker Rick Springfield brought jaded New York commuters to a standstill Wednesday morning when he performed his hit, “Jessie’s Girl” at Manhattan’s Penn Station.

After getting several dozen onlookers to sing along — not all of them in key, unfortunately — Springfield boarded the 1 train and continued his concert on the go.

 

Reminder! Tomorrow morning! Rick's making you late to work in NYC starting at the 34th Street subway station,” the 63-year-old musician tweeted to his 23,000 followers the night before. “Then uptown on the 1 train with more stops! Follow Rick on Twitter for real time updates! #ricknyc

It was no token peformance — Springfield was in the midst of promoting his latest album, “Songs for the End of the World,” which was released Tuesday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FYI. Mr. Springfield was a star on "General Hopstial" when this hit #1 in summer of 1981. Ladies and Gents in case you never heard of "Jessie Girl" here the video.

Cool! First time somethin' like this has happened in a while.

 

 

So dumb question? Granted Rick Springfield is not an (A) list pop star anymore but when was the last time a singer with a #1 pop hit performed on the subway? And sorry guys i dont count music videos, there been dozens of singers who shot videos on the nyc subway system. :o

If I would have been the conductor of that train, I would have wanted to slap this guy across the head with a shoe paddle. Smh.

Fall of '81!? I was four! Ya know... when the hair on the sides of my head started to grow a tad faster than the hair on top of my head I was completely oblivious to the fact that I could, indeed, go bald! LOL
