    Ah, 80s Bruce. With his boyish smile and tight jeans, is it any wonder the ladies love him?

    Performance notes: recommend strumming pattern 4/4 time: duDuduDu. Hit beats 2 and 4 HARD for that stadium-rocking rhythm.

    The video below (watch for a young Courteney Cox at the end) is in the original key of B. If you want to play along with the video, capo on the 4th fret.

    "Dancing in the Dark" is a song written and performed by American rock singer Bruce Springsteen. With added uptempo synthesizer riffs and some syncopation to his sound for the first time, the song spent four weeks at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 and eventually sold over one million singles in the U.S. alone. As the first single released from his 1984 album, Born in the U.S.A., it became his biggest hit and propelled the album to become the best-selling one of his career. (Wikipedia)

Look how young Bruce Springsteen is. I remember thinking he was old when this came out, how perceptions change. Love the tune, I hope to try it a few times before Wednesday.
