Darkness on the Edge of Town, 1978

Though the Darkness sessions were driven by Springsteen's huge backlog of material post-Born to Run, "Streets of Fire" was actually written in the studio. It's one of his bluesiest, most desolate tracks. Producers of a noirish 1984 rock movie titled Streets of Fire wanted to use a version of the song by the New Wave band Face to Face, but Springsteen turned them down – and wisely so, since the film tanked.
