Our final Artist of the Day for the “Grand Vacation Giveaway” today is Bruce Springsteen.
“I’m On Fire” was always my favorite Bruce song, even if I’m not the biggest Springsteen fan (I AM from Brooklyn after all, so Billy Joel is my “Bruce Springsteen.”)
I remember seeing this video on NBC’s “Friday Night Videos” in constant rotation in 1985 off the “Born In The USA” album and thinking that in the video, Bruce is going to be a homewrecker! When he sees the attractive woman bring her car to his shop to be repaired, she appears to be hitting on him and wants him to personally deliver the car to her home. He notices a wedding ring on her hand and DOES bring her the car late at night and considers ringing the doorbell, but he simply leaves the keys in the mailbox and does the right thing. Good for you, Boss!
“I’m On Fire” peaked at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and won an MTV Video Music Award for Best Male Video.
