Our July 7MP3 is an acoustic cover of "Dancing in the Dark" by Bruce Springsteen performed by Jason and Thomas at City Arts Factory in Orlando in March of 2007. This much bootlegged acoustic set featured many amazing covers, the first public performance of "Untitled" on Backbooth, and earlier versions of many songs that made their way onto day&nightdriving. I would not be surprised if several more City Arts Factory recordings become 7MP3s. There's no real reason to explain why this song was chosen. He is The Boss, after all. But, I will say that every time I hear this song I am struck by how good the lyrics are and listening to this version sends chills due to Ross' delivery and the sparse arrangement.
