Hot Chip — “Dancing in the Dark”

The 1980s were, in many ways, a terrible decade.  The religious right was at its peak.  The President of the United States depended on his wife’s astrologer for policy decisions.  Urban crime rates soared as a side effect of the rise of crack cocaine.  AIDS.  Margaret Thatcher.

And probably the worst hairstyles of the 20th Century.

But, damn, the music was great!

Here’s British dance rockers Hot Chip covering Bruce Springsteen’s 1984 hit, “Dancing In The Dark”.
