Eddie and the Cruisers

Synopsis: They say rock 'n' roll never dies, but one early morning in 1964, Eddie Wilson's car took a dive off a New Jersey bridge with the troubled rock idol at the wheel. His body was never found. Twenty years after the lead singer of Eddie and the Cruisers disappeared, the band's songs are hotter than ever. And renewed interest in the band leads television reporter Maggie Foley to pursue a tantalizing mystery: What if Eddie is still alive? The circumstances surrounding his death are just shadowy enough to make it a distinct possibility, and someone (could it be Eddie?) has been ransacking the homes of the surviving band members in a desperate search for tapes of the group's visionary, never-released album. As Maggie interviews the former band members, the pieces of the puzzle start to fit - but only until still deeper mysteries begin to surface.

summer nights

wild summer nights

oh, baby, run wild

summer nights

run wild

summer nights

back on the charts again,

Eddie and the cruisers,

doing wild summer nights

From their hit album,

tender years.

And this is Scott muni at n. E.W.

Hey, Mr. Ridgeway!

Hey, nice catch.

"... and so

I dared to hope...

"though changed,

no doubt, from what I was

"When first I came

among these hills.

"When like a roe,

I bounded o'er the mountains

"By the sides of the deep rivers

and the lonely streams,

"Wherever nature led.

"More like a man

"Flying from something

that he dreads

And one who sought

the thing he loved. "

So, what's wordsworth

getting at?

He's saying

that places stay the same,

But people change.

Ok, do people change,

or don't they?

Now that's worth

talking about.

All right.

Have a nice weekend.

And remember, I don't want

to see any of your faces

For at least 48 hours.

as I walk alone

I wonder

what went wrong

with our love

a love

that was so strong

and as I

still walk on

I think of

the things we've done


while our hearts

were young

Im a-Walkin'

in the rain

tears are fallin'

and I feel the pain

wishin' you were

here by me...

The big time!

to end this misery

I wonder

I wo-Wo-Wo-Wo




she ran away

and I wonder

where she will stay

my little runaway

my run, run, run,

run, runaway



Im a-Walkin'

in the rain

tears are fallin'

and I feel the pain

wishin' you were

here by me

to end this misery

I wonder

I wo-Wo-Wo-Wo



why, why, why,

why, why...

Can I help

you guys?

I wonder

Yeah. Tell tony

are here.
