Anthems for Authors – Dancing in the Dark

Okay, how about we just get this out of the way first? Yes, it’s Courtney Cox. Yes, she was a plant. Yes, this video launched her career.

More importantly, there is one sentence near the end of this song that speaks to writers. The song builds up to it…and then, when he gets there, I always yell “I’m sicka sittin’ round here tryin’ to write this book.” And I’ve been doing that since 1984. And now, Dancing in the Dark by The Boss, Bruce Springsteen.

  1. Oh, the memories. I saw him a couple of times when he did this tour. This was his sell-out song after being the only one who really earned that “Next Dylan” tag he had to carry around for all those years.
    Thanks, it’s stuck in my head now as well as all the memories of all those teenage insecurities and nights of debauchery. Yep, debauchery, my version is way better than how it really all played out.
    Thanks for this, Kat.

  2. I adore The Boss. His lyrics always tell a story. Going to see him in July. He plays my hometown, Cork, Ireland for the very first time.
