On new album Why Make Sense?, we heard Hot Chip effectively bring the sounds of the club into the humble abodes of their fans. Now with their cover of “Dancing in the Dark”, we get to imagine what it would be like if the UK electronica outfit took Bruce Springsteen out for a night on the town.

Hot Chip tackled the ’80s classic — and arguably the most hip-shaking tune in the Boss’ extensive discography — at a recent show in Milwaukee, flipping it into an all-out, frenzied party anthem. Considering Springsteen, age 65, stays up later than I do, I think he’d totally be down with this rendition. Check out footage below.
