Eddie And The Cruisers is a 1983 film based on the novel by P.F. Kluge. The story concerns the mysterious death of a fictional '60s rock star. The Cruisers were a Jersey bar band modeled after Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band with a blend of Dion and the Belmonts and the Doors. John Cafferty was hired to write a few songs that contained elements of these three bands and he and his Beaver Brown Band recorded the soundtrack. After screenings on HBO in 1984, the album found a massive audience. The main song in the film, "On The Dark Side," became the number one song on Billboard's charts.
