Bruce Springsteen produced six singles that sold either gold or platinum in the United States, including "Dancing in the Dark," "Cover Me," "Born in the USA," "My Hometown," "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town" and "Streets of Philadelphia." The song "I'm on Fire" also went silver in the UK.
According to the Recording Industry Association of America, an album or single that sells 500,000 units certifies as gold. An album or single that sells 1 million units is certified as platinum. However, prior to January 1, 1989, the numbers of sales required to qualify for gold and platinum were higher. Previously, it took 1 million to be gold and 2 million to be platinum.
