On the way to work this morning the song On the dark side came on and made me think of Eddie and The Cruisers. Awesome flick. Anyone else remember the movie?

    Yup!! I had, ok, have, both it and the sequel on VHS. I also have the soundtrack. I went to a wedding in RI in the town that John Cafferty (the actual singer) is from, he played the local bars often but sadly he was out of town that weekend so I didn't get to see him live :(

    Oh man, what memories. My best friend at the time was named Eddie. We were in Jr. high I believe and we watched that a few times. Good song.

    Great movie. I love the scene on the rooftop when Eddie takes a simple riff from the piano player, and they work it into rock and roll. Reminds me of some jam sessions we had in Chicago.

    Got to see John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown band in a small club back in 1985 when I was stationed at New River Jacksonville NC.  Still remember that concert, it has to be one of the best live shows I have ever been to. It was an awesome small nightclub venue concert.
