22/365 – ‘Fire’, Bruce Springsteen (1977) – 365 Days of Music

This must be the sexiest song in his entire repertoire.  He wrote it for Elvis, but Elvis died before he had chance to record it.  It was written during the ‘Darkness’ sessions, but Bruce felt it didn’t fit in with themes of struggle and hopelessness that feature on that album.  I have to fully restrain myself from throwing my underwear at my computer screen whenever I watch the live performance from 1986.  Listen, and melt.  Here is the live version.  Enjoy.
