Scenes from the Southside is the second album by Bruce Hornsby and the Range. The single "The Valley Road" was Hornsby's third (and last) Top 10 U.S. hit, peaking at number five on the Billboard Hot 100, and also his first number one on the Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart. It became his third chart-topper on the Billboard adult contemporary chart, following "The Way It Is" and "Mandolin Rain". Two other notable tracks on the record were "The Show Goes On", which was featured in Ron Howard's 1991 film Backdraft, and "Jacob's Ladder", which was written by Bruce and John Hornsby, but is most well known as being a number-one hit for Huey Lewis and the News in March 1987.
