Eddie and the Cruisers II: Eddie Lives!

Synopsis: In the early 1960s, legendary rock star Eddie Wilson disappeared from the limelight when he drove his car off a New Jersey bridge. Trying to escape his past, Eddie changed his name and has maintained a quiet life as construction worker Joe West in Montreal. However, the past will not die, it is screaming for resolution. His relentless desire to make music pulls him back to the stage where he forms a new band and an even better sound. Meanwhile, record company executives release newly-discovered tapes from Eddie's last album and promotes a worldwide search for the mysterious rock star. Joe West has become both mentor and nucleus for his new band that dreams of making it big without knowing their mysterious leader is the real Eddie Wilson. As his new band hits center stage, Eddie finally comes to terms with his past, himself and his music.

The dark side's

calling now nothing is real

She'll never know

just how I feel

From out of the shadows

she walks like a dream

Makes me feel crazy

makes me feel so mean

Ain't nothing gonna save you

from a love that's blind

When you slip

to the dark side you cross that line

On the dark side,

oh, yeah

On the dark side, oh, yeah

(INDISTINCT CHATTERING)

Hi, guys.

Hi.

The dark side's

calling now nothing is real

She'll never know

just how I feel

Hey, Joe,

come on, drink up.

We only got half

an hour for lunch.

From out of the shadows

she walks like a dream

What's the matter

with you?

WOMAN ON TV:
That was Eddie and

the Cruisers doing On The Dark Side.

It was a long time ago,

right, kids?

But take it from me,

Eddie Wilson was it,

rock 'n' roll's

fastest-rising star.

Then on a cold March morning,

Eddie Wilson died.

Tonight at 10:
00 p.m.,

for the first time anywhere in the world,

an Eddie Wilson look-alike contest,

sponsored by Satin Records.

It'll be broadcast live,

right here on Rock TV News.

Do you believe this?

Just like Elvis.

Now it's this clown.

Hey, Joe. Joe?

Where's Joe?

(NYC SONG PLAYING)

Say, hey, little girl,

take me by the hand

Walk me down this boardwalk

one last time again

We see those

pretty pier lights

Hear those carnival sounds

We stop right

at the top tonight

When the Ferris wheel

goes round

You say that

I've been restless

You don't understand

Tomorrow I'll be leaving

on that morning train

Gonna leave this

candy apple town behind

Get out while I still can

Going to New York City

With this guitar in my hand

Been wishing

on these stars too long

Been playing

in these bars too long

Holed up

in your arms too long

Been a prisoner

of my heart too long

Going to New York City

To find out where I stand

And I'll be walking

down Broadway

With this guitar

in my hand

MAN ON RADIO:
The re-issue of the Eddie

and the Cruisers' album

has gone platinum

in only four weeks, a major phenomenon.

And with me here tonight

is one of the original Cruisers, Sal Amato.

Welcome to the show, Sal.

SAL:
Thanks.

Nice to be here.

MAN:
Now tell me something.

In a few minutes, you're gonna

receive the Platinum Album Award

for selling over

a million albums.

How does that feel?

Well, it's hard.

I feel good and bad.

You know, I mean,

for our album

to become this popular after all these years

of being out of release,

never being heard on the radio.

You gotta understand,

with Eddie, music was everything.

I mean, it wasn't

just songs or records.

With Eddie, music was

your whole life.

MAN:
Now tell me

something, Sal.

What's this whispering we hear around

about some surprise announcement?

Does it have

something to do with the old band?

SAL:
I'm sorry.

I can't talk about it.

All right, Sal.

Well, the tension is

building up right here

at Club Metropolis.

(CARS HONKING)

MAN:
She'll never know

just how I feel

From out of the shadows

she walks like a dream

Makes me feel crazy

makes me feel so mean

Ain't nothing gonna save you

from a love that's blind

When you slip

to the dark side you cross that line

On the dark side, oh, yeah

On the dark side, oh, yeah

Ain't nothing gonna save you

from a love that's blind

When you slip

to the dark side you cross that line

On the dark side, oh, yeah

On the dark side, oh, yeah

On the dark side, oh, yeah

On the dark side, oh, yeah

All right, everybody.

You have now heard...

Whoa, whoa, whoa

for a second.

You have now heard

the last of the finalists

in the Eddie Wilson

Look-Alike Contest.

We've given Sal Amato
