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)

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.
