Bruce played the song during the 27th epsiode of 'From My Home to Yours' series, themed "Going to the Chapel", a homage to songs about love and marriage.
Bruce: Yes, that was Sam & Dave, back in the days when they were speaking to one another, with "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby (Something Is Wrong With Me)". I've seen them perform that, live in Philadelphia. Also at the Satellite Lounge in Fort Dix, New Jersey. And at The Fastlane, that's right, The Fastlane in Asbury Park. I saw Sam & Dave three times while they were still playing together. And, literally, every time, they brought me to tears. And certainly with this song. They were just one of the most powerful, incredible duos of all time. And when I saw them at The Fastlane, it was heartbreaking, because it was a relatively small crowd there, and they simply sang their hearts out. And I can tell you, I stood in the back of the room and wept at seeing this great, great, great talent, later in the day of their performing together, bringing in, really, quite a small audience, and it was just so undeserved, and they were so epic and so profound that it touched me incredibly deeply. And that about says it all. Almost."
