sometimes it's like someone took a knife baby edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley through the middle of my soul

i'm really obsessed with bruce springsteen's i'm on fire from the 1984 album born in the u.s.a.

i currently have it playing on repeat on my record player. and i by repeat i mean i have to physically put the needle back to the beginning after it ends. haha. but it just sounds so lovely on vinyl. i have several versions i'm going to share with you including a cover by kate tucker.

i'm on fire (from born in the u.s.a.)
i'm on fire (from the live 1975-1985 album, recorded august 19, 1985 at giants stadium)
i'm on fire (cousin cole's bad desire remix)
i'm on fire (kate tucker cover)

you should find the chromatics version of "i'm on fire" it's the best one I've ever heard and truly a delight to the ears. ; )

there are live versions from both tegan and sara, and the gaslight anthem that are incredible.

i absolutely adore this song.

definitely look into the Bat for Lashes cover of "I'm on Fire" too. I think that's head and shoulders above the others I've heard.
