A few weeks ago Kara Monterey posted 6 Brilliant Songs with Fire/Burning Analogies and, while they are all fine choices, I thought of a few others that fit the theme. Actually, I can think of lots of others. Fire and burning are not uncommon images in popular songs, but these I think are well worth a listen.
The first brilliant burning-related song that sprang to mind was Burning Memories by Katy Moffat. I couldn’t find a video of the song anywhere, but here’s the audio:
Next on my 3-song playlist is Firewalker by Liz Phair. I admit that I skipped over a few more obvious choices and dug into my music collection to find this one. I’m so glad I did.
Smoke from a Distant Fire by Sanford Townsend Band is really the second song that I thought of for this playlist. I’ve always liked this song and the way that it mixes really sad lyrics with such an upbeat and catchy melody.
There, now. Is everyone feeling all bouncy and dancy again? As I said, there are lots of songs that fit this theme. Do you have any favorites to share? Let me know in the comments!
