Joan Jett's surprise hit cover of the Bruce Springsteen composition, "Light of Day" (the title track from her motion picture acting debut of the same name), had reinvigorated her music career in 1987. And Jett cashed in on the newly rekindled attention, issuing 1988's UP YOUR ALLEY, her first major hit album since the early '80s.
Although Jett had become notorious for the amount of cover songs she included on her albums (they usually far outnumbered her original compositions), Jett scored a big hit co-written with Desmond Child, "I Hate Myself For Loving You." Another Child/Jett original, "Little Liar," proved to be another highlight, as well as covers of Chuck Berry ("Tulane") and the Stooges' "I Wanna Be Your Dog." Somewhat more pop-oriented than her previous punkier releases, UP YOUR ALLEY was a successful ending to the '80s for Joan Jett.
