Johnny Cash’s At San Quentin is 51 today. The Kinks’ One For The Road is 40. Motörhead’s Another Perfect Day is 37. Springsteen’s Born in the U.S.A. is 36 (exactly one month before July 4). Squirrel Nut Zippers’ Hot and Bryan Adams’ 18 til I Die and Metallica’s Load are 24. Paul McCartney’s Memory Almost Full is 13.
So, one of my favorite tunes from the Springsteen album is “I’m on Fire.” I was lucky enough to get to do that one in 2015 when the Vagabond Saints Society did a night of Bruce Springsteen songs. I was one of only a handful of people that got to do tunes. So, in this video, you get to hear me rattle off three of the four songs I did that night, “I’m on Fire,” “Spirit in the Night” and “If I Should Fall Behind.” The fourth was “Because the Night.” I don’t know what happened to that one. And, ignore the wind sound, I’m pretty sure that was either coming through the windows or from the Big Ass Fan. I miss The Garage. Enjoy!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“Sometimes it’s like someone took a knife, baby, edgy and dull, and cut a six-inch valley through the middle of my soul. At night, I wake up with the sheets soakin’ wet and a freight train runnin’ through the middle of my head. Only you can cool my desire. Oh oh oh I’m on fire.” – “I’m on Fire” (Springsteen)
