It seemed like a good idea.
But Bruce Springsteen's music (and this song in particular) is the type that utterly clashed with the general type of the R&B infected New Wavy dance music that was popular in the dance clubs in 1984 this version was made for. No matter how much drum machine and strange background singers you put in it.
That might be why Bruce Springsteen himself has never re-released this version of "Dancing In The Dark" on any of his compilations.
And let's face it, it's a horrible remix.
