The last time A Plus faves Postmodern Jukebox teamed with Kansas City crooner Von Smith, it was for a lush sock-hop cover of MAGIC!'s "Rude," gorgeously soaked in '50s flavor and pulling down over 9 million views. Since then, we've seen releases of even more stellar covers, each carefully crafted as nostalgic throwbacks to bygone eras when music was more, well, musical.
Their latest endeavors include a roadhouse blues cover of Bon Jovi's "You Give Love A Bad Name" and a doo-wop cover of Hanson's "MMMBop" that won them rare praise from the song's originators.
Much to our delight, they brought Von Smith back on board for a soul-soaked '50s-style cover of Bruce Springsteen's 1984 hit "Dancing in the Dark."
Shot in an old-school soda fountain/diner, the video also features an appearance by Grammy winner Tim Kubart, who makes a joyous entrance with a tambourine at the 00:00:45 mark.
