This Bruce cover from Tegan and Sara popped up in my Facebook feed today with commentary from Maggie, who said "I love this version. You can hear how sad the lyrics are without that stupid synthesizer." I'd never thought of "Dancing in the Dark" in that way, but she's totally right. There's still that Brucely note of triumph, of course—there always is—but this is a sad song, as misinterpreted in its own way as "Born in the U.S.A" or (from the other direction) "41 Shots".
