  • The dark side's callin' now, nothin' is real
    She'll never know just how I feel
    From out of the shadows she walks like a dream
    Make me feel crazy, make me feel so mean

    Ain't nothin' gonna save you from the love that's blind
    Slip to the dark side and cross that line
    On the dark side, oh yeah
    On the dark side, oh yeah

    The dark side's callin' now, nothin' is real
    She'll never know just how I feel
    From out of the shadows she walks like a dream
    Make me feel crazy, make me feel so mean

    Ain't nothin' gonna save you from the love that's blind
    Slip to the dark side and cross that line
    On the dark side, oh yeah
    On the dark side, oh yeah

    Ain't nothin' gonna save you from the love that's blind
    Slip to the dark side and 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 Writer/s: JOHN A. CAFFERTY

  • Firebird7479 from PhiladelphiaI was in the movie. I was an extra at the college concert scene. We all thought they sounded like Springsteen. However, the movie stinks. The music does not fit 1962. 1972, yes. Not 1962.
  • Cjstevens from Western MontanaDark Side just came on a local station. It's on my 'all-time favorites' list, in part because the sax player is right on the money.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn October 20th 1984, John Cafferty & the Beaver Brown Band performed "On the Dark Side" on the ABC-TV program 'American Bandstand'...
    The song first entered the Billboard Hot Top 100 chart more than a year earlier on October 2nd, 1983 at position #94, it re-entered in 1984 and the day after the band's appearance on 'Bandstand' it peaked at #7 {for 2 weeks} and spent a grand total of 27 weeks on the Top 100..
    On the same 'Bandstand' show the sextet also performed "Tender Years"; it peaked at #31 {for 1 week} on January 6th, 1985.
  • Supergrassfan from Pepperland, PaVery reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's sound
  • Jon from Enumclaw , WaI love this movie!
  • Johnnys Cousin Steve from Villas, NjGreat movie...Great tune...Great band! I was one of those kids who saw it 20 times on HBO one Summer living down at the shore! Great job Kenny Vance for putting all that together! Wouldn't have been the same movie without him. Check out Jay and the Americans too!!!
