Blinded By the Light, a movie based on a true story of a Pakistani teen whose life is transformed by Springsteen's music. The soundtrack, of course, features a handful of Bruce Springsteen rarities including an unreleased studio rendition of "I'll Stand By You". "It was something that I thought would have fit lovely [in the movies]," Springsteen said of the track, which leaked in 2017. "At some point I'd like to get ['I'll Stand By You Always'] into a children's movie of some sort. It was a pretty lovely song." The song finally found its place in Blinded By the Light.
In addition to 'I'll Stand By You' (which Springsteen originally wrote for the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone film), and Springsteen classics like 'Badlands,' 'Hungry Heart' and 'Thunder Road,'' the 'Blinded By the Light' soundtrack boasts two more live rarities: The first ever performance of 'The River,'' from the No Nukes '79 concert at Madison Square Garden, and an acoustic rendition of 'The Promised Land' that Springsteen performed in 2014 at Washington, D.C.'s National Mall. Both live songs were previously unavailable on any album.
