VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Bruce Springsteen – ‘Dancing In The Dark’

January 29, 2018

This week we turn to our attention to a watershed moment from The Boss (and not just because of Courtney Cox’s Dad dancing…)

The first single to be released from Springsteen’s landmark ‘Born In The USA’ record, ‘Dancing In The Dark’ also marked the first occasion that New Jersey’s favourite guitar-slinger experimented with synthesisers.

It sold two million copies, The Boss’ biggest hit to date, and propelling ‘Born In The USA’ to become the biggest selling Springsteen album of all time.

The video was directed by Brian De Palma and shot over two nights at the Saint Paul Civic Center in Minnesota. And yes, Courtney Cox gets pulled onstage at 3:30 to dance like your Dad at a wedding.
