F IS FOR FIRE

For each letter of the A to Z, I'm going to give you a KEYWORD. You post in the comments a song with that word in the title. I will give you one to start (along with a video). If you like, you can go to YouTube and embed your video in the comments, so that readers can also listen to your song. No repeats and only post one song so that everyone can participate. If you're just brimming with songs, come back in a few days and lay it on me! If you want to see who else is participating in the A to Z click here.

 You guys did great with yesterday's word: Eyes. Here are the songs you thought of with Eyes in the title:


Michele: These Eyes by The Guess Who
Alex J. Cavanaugh: The Camera Eye by Rush
Andrea: Bette Davis Eyes by Kim Carnes
Stephen T. McCarthy: Ebony Eyes by Bob Welch
Ericka: When You Close Your Eyes by Night Ranger
Holli: Blue Eyes Cryin' In The Rain by Willie Nelson
Diane Wolfe: Hungry Eyes by Eric Carmen
Pinku-Sensei: In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel
Robyn: For Your Eyes Only by Sheena Easton
Mary Burris: Sad Eyes by Robert John and Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue by Crystal Gayle
ABFTS: Open Your Eyes by Sum 41
D.G. Hudson: Brown Eyed Handsome Man by Chuck Barry
Debbie the Doglady: Eyes of a Stranger by Queensryche
Sarah Foster: Queenie Eye by Paul McCartney
Rosey: Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison
Jeffrey: Private Eyes by Hall and Oates
Robin (yes, me again): Eye of the Tiger by Survivor

If you posted an Eyes song and don't see it here, it came in after I called it a night. If you can think of more songs from previous letters and WANT to post them now, feel free to go back and add them:)

It's a new day and a new letter!

What is the KEYWORD?


You can use variations. In this case, fires, fired, firing, and other reasonable variations... like this one.

I present to you.....The Fireman by George Strait.



I try hard to choose things that I don't think you guys will choose. In this case, I've got something for my non-country fans. I do try and please ya'll as much as possible.

So, I also present to you Third Day with Soul on Fire.




P.S. Stephen T. McCarthy, I think you'll really appreciate this one beginning at the 2 minute mark. 


You can comment with a song tile and artist or embed the video by copy/pasting the code from the search bar. Thanks for playing along!


Special thanks to Arlee Bird and the A to Z team who make this possible!

    1. Not heard this one before. Good song.

  4. Something conventional for once, although very old school--"Light My Fire" by The Doors.

  5. Soul on Fire continues to haunt my nightmares. (I play with the worship team at church, that one gets stuck in your head for weeks, and just when you're finally free of it, some a-hole starts singing it in front of you.)

    In the same vein though......
    "Fire on the Mountain" by Ed Kowalczyk

    1. So, what you're saying is that Soul on Fire is an "earworm" song for you, right? Ah well.

      Cool about being on the praise team. I liked this song. It was new to me, so thanks!

  6. I liked your second song, Robin. The first one was a bit too country for my taste, although I do like some country music - the ones that have a rock vibe, anyway. The first song that came to mind when I saw your topic: It was campy good fun, back in the day. ☺

    2. That first song was funny. Again, new to me. So thanks!

    3. Any time. I'm probably older than most people here, so I have a long musical history to draw upon. ☺

    1. I've not heard the Elmer Fudd version of this before today. This song holds a fond place in my heart (not this version, of course), but The Pointer Sisters. Ah... this is taking me back...

  9. Whoa, things are WAY too classy in here. Let's bring that down a few notches, huh?

    1. Obviously, you haven't listened to anything prior to your own posting. "Classy" isn't the precise word I'd choose for these offerings. Some are very funny, though.

      This song is terrible, Bryan. Really terrible, though. I'll let you know later what your prize is.

    1. Did you like the second song I posted???

      Delete
    2. Ha! Sorry, GIRL WONDER, I didn't even notice the remark directed to me, and I didn't play either song because I was about to rush outta da house. So I just saw the keyword, posted my song quickly and ran out the door.

      Musically, I wasn't real wild about the song, but I definitely liked and can relate to the lyrics. I also really like the band's name. I think that 3rd Day is just around the corner. 2028 or 2029, to be specific.

    1. This song came out before my time (as in before my interest in popular music). When I was a senior in high school I heard this song on the radio for the first time. The DJ didn't say the name of the song or who sang it. I spent months singing what I could remember to anyone who would listen to see if they could identify it. Eventually I got a winner. And then I bought a cassette tape of his greatest hits. That tape still holds a special place in my heart. As does this song. Thank you, Dixie.

  15. I'd hate to tell you the word change a buddy and I did to The Fireman back in the day...


    Anyway...

    I woulda posted Bob Seger's Fire Lake, but he's one of those "I don't wanna be on social media" types and the best out there is what one commenter called "a turd of a live video". Sorry!
