A film that I have always wanted to see that I never did was Eddie and the Cruisers which was a fictitious film about a reporter who is sent to investigate the mysterious death of a rock star named Eddie Wilson (Michael Pare). Eddie was in a band that was very similar to Springsteen and others like that called Eddie and the Cruisers. Eddie and the Cruisers was basically the band John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band, a band from Narragansett, Rhode Island. The first time I heard about them was in a film and so I looked them up and discovered that they were the band behind the film. The song I chose for Soundtrack Saturday was the band’s track On The Dark Side which went number one on the Billboard Mainstream, Rock, and Heatseeker charts and it went number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts. It’s an amazing track that sounds like a Jersey bar band as they described. Check out the track below and check out the film.
