Bruce Springsteen - Dancing In The Dark

So have you guys seen The Place Beyond The Pines? Because… man.

Also, I’ve been on a slight 80’s kick lately, starting with the original Karate Kid soundtrack and then a beach trip where we blasted Rush, Springsteen and the whole way there and it’s all lead me to this moment where I’m giving you this classic suburban 4th of July cookout staple. You know you love the song.

And let’s just take a second to enjoy the humor in the misuse of the eponymous track from Bruce the boss’ 1984 album Born In The U.S.A. How many times have you heard it used in a some heavy-handed jingoistic “AMERICA, FUCK YEAH!” way when the meaning of the song is pretty critical of impotent patriotism? I kind of love when a song’s possibly controversial lyrical content is ignored because the music is ironically made to sound a a completely different way. I mean, have you ever really listened to Semi-Charmed Life? Because this is something that should have never happened.

Anyway, I guess I’ll see you guys next week. Same rockin’ time, same rockin’ station! WTSB, Soundboardmusic.FM!
