Blinded by the Light

“Blinded by the Light” is a song written and originally recorded by Bruce Springsteen which first appeared on his 1973 debut album Greetings from Asbury Park N.J.. A cover by British rock band Manfred Mann’s Earth Band reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States in February 1977 and was also a top ten hit in the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Canada.

The song came about when Columbia president Clive Davis, upon listening to an early version of Greetings from Asbury Park N.J., felt the album lacked a potential single. Springsteen wrote this and “Spirit in the Night” in response.
