"Secret Garden" is a 1995 single by Bruce Springsteen. It was originally released February 27, 1995 on his Greatest Hits album on Columbia Records. Upon its initial release it peaked at #19 on the Billboard Hot 100 in early 1997.[1] It was then re-released on April 11 of that same year on Sony Records as a two track single, featuring a live version of "Thunder Road". (An EP was also released in 1995, featuring two versions of "Secret Garden" ("album" and "string"), live versions of "Murder Incorporated" and "Thunder Road" and the original version of "Pink Cadillac" from "Greatest Hits.")

The song gained much of its popularity after being featured on the soundtrack for the 1996 movie Jerry Maguire peaking at #12 and #15 on the Adult Top 40 and Top 40 Mainstream respectively.[2]

It was also featured in the film Night at the Roxbury.
