MyPod Birthday Shuffle IV - Day 2 - Fire

"Fire" was actually written in 1977 by Bruce Springsteen who hoped that Elvis would one day sing it.  However, it was picked up by the Pointer Sister who recorded it and released their version in 1978.  This is the version most people are familiar with:



I actually first heard the song on the Doctor Demento Radio Show.  Anyone remember that?  Here's that version:



Of course, the version I later found and have on my iPod is the original live version by Bruce himself.  It's just so slow and sultry and perfect for thoughts of warm summer nights and boozy lust.  Enjoy!
