19

Song: Dancing in the Dark
Aritst: Bruce Springsteen
Age: 58

This song always reminds me of my Dad because it was a song he loved. Dad had just purchased a new video camera and decided he had to “test it out”. While he was all alone one day, he moved all the furniture out of the small dining area in the apartment and placed the video camera on the dining room table next to a boombox (Dad was trey hip!). The next thing we know he had recorded himself dancing (not quite in the dark) to Dancing in the Dark. I was 30/31 when he did this. Dad passed away in 2001 and I still have the recording. It makes me smile/laugh/cry whenever I watch/hear it. I am so glad to have this wonderful memory of him.
