This week’s selection is in honor of the 60th birthday of E Street Band drummer, Max Weinberg – Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s “Dancing in the Dark”:
Of course, this video is best remembered for the appearance of Courteney Cox as a fan who is invited on stage by Springsteen, and dances with him. The video was filmed in June 1984 at the St. Paul Civic Center in Saint Paul, Minnesota, before and during the initial show of the Born in the U.S.A. Tour.
The video got constant airplay on MTV when it was released. This was the introduction to Bruce Springsteen for most of us who grew up in the ’80s.
