I'm On Fire - Bruce Springsteen cover by normand62 published on 2013/05/28 08:37:18 +0000 "I'm on Fire" is a Bruce Springsteen song which was recorded in February 1982 during the first wave of his Born in the U.S.A. sessions. In the music video of the song, Springsteen plays a working class automobile mechanic with an attractive, married, very well-to-do, mostly unseen female customer who brings her vintage Ford Thunderbird in for frequent servicing, always requesting that he does the work. She leaves a small bunch of keys with him when she leaves in her car, possibly including house keys, but declines his offer to bring the car out to her house when it's ready. Later that night, he drives the car up to her mansion high in the hills above the city. He looks to a second floor window with the light on and is about to ring the bell, when he thinks better of it and drops her keys in the mailbox next to the door. He smiles wistfully and walks away down towards the city lights below.
