Listen to Lucy Dacus’ ‘Dancing in the Dark’ from Home Before Dark, Season 2, Episode 9

American indie rock singer songwriter Lucy Dacus has a superb cover of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Dancing in the Dark‘.

A cover song that showed up on the drama series Home Before Dark this week — Home Before Dark, Season 2, Episode 9, “The Biggest Life“.

The track was played as Hilde and her friends send a text message to the entire student body about the walkout.

It then continues as we see students checking their phones and then agreeing to walkout as well.

Lucy Dacus’ ‘Dancing in the Dark‘ was released in 2019 on the singer’s seven-track EP 2019 via the Matador record label.

The cool track still has the same driving beat similar to the Springsteen rock classic, but has a much sweeter and more mellow sound.

Springsteen’s original release of the song came out in May 1984 and immediately entered the Billboard Hot 100 at #2.

It was his first single from his mega-hit album Born in the U.S.A. An album that even now, almost 40 years later, is still thought of as one of the best American rock/dance rock albums ever released.

Listen to Lucy Dacus’ ‘Dancing in the Dark‘ cover as heard on last night’s Home Before Dark in the video, and on her 2019 EP.

As forĀ Home Before Dark, the popular drama is currently airing on Apple TV+.
