Happy Music Monday! It’s too hot out and Scott’s on vacation anyway. So this week we’re gonna burn the place down with songs about fire. Easy to understand, easy to assemble, easy to enjoy. See you next week!

Harry Nilsson - Jump Into The Fire

 

A perfect tropical party sound. Probably they’ll play this in the hotel where Scott’s staying. Maybe by the pool.

More comin’ up after the jump.

Crazy World Of Arthur Brown - Fire

 

A classic of weirdness! You’ll hear this on many many jukeboxes, maybe even at one of the bars where Scott’s spending time since he doesn’t have work in the morning. He’s on vacation, you know.

U2 - Fire

 

U2 comes from a far away country. Do you think Scott’s gone there for a vacation? Maybe he’ll send a postcard!

Ohio Players - Fire

 

A song that makes you want to get up and dance! Which one can do all night long when one’s on vacation.

The Runaways - I Love Playing With Fire

 

You know, maybe Scott should have made this particular Music Monday all about vacation songs! Ah, well, live and learn.

Post either fire or vacation songs in the comments below. Whichever you feel in your heart. And let us also just remind you: some images come from the corresponding Wikipedia page and are here under fair use. Scott’ll see you next week, post-vacation.

Oh, so many songs!

Steely Dan, Fire in the Hole


Lydia Lunch, Still Burning


Lydia Lunch & Rowland S. Howard, Burning Skulls


Bruce Springsteen, I'm on Fire


Some or all of this fire may be metaphorical.

I forgot Springsteen's "Fire", originally released by the Pointer Sisters back in the late 70's I think.
