This anti-war track was covered by The Pet Shop Boys for their 2013 Electric
album. Neil Tennant of the band explained why they chose this song to Spin
magazine: "My favorite records by Bruce Springsteen are pop records: 'Dancing In The Dark
,' 'Tunnel Of Love
,' 'Streets Of Philadelphia
.' I think the cover we've done of the Bruce Springsteen song on this album makes it into a pop song," he said. "But we haven't changed it any way at all. It's just done in a pop style rather than his E Street Band style. We could do a lot of Bruce Springsteen - not that we will. They're very powerfully written songs with good melodies and quite simple chord changes, more simple than our chord changes, so they take to the electronic treatment."
