FIRE
(Bruce Springsteen)
ROBERT GORDON (PRIVATE STOCK 45203, 1978)

Robert's best shot came in 1978 when he released "Fire". Not only was it a great song, but it was written by artiste du jour, Bruce Springsteen. God knows why Springsteen didn't cut it himself, but he didn't. He gave it to Robert, and even showed up to play piano on the date. With that kind of pedigree and buzz, you'd think that "Fire" wouldn't stop short of the Top 10. It didn't disappoint, it got all the way up to #2 - but by The Pointer Sisters, who released the song in 1979.  - Colin Escott -

I'm drivin' in my car, you turn on the radio
I'm pullin' you close, but you just say no
You say you don't like it, but girl I know you're a liar
'Cause when we kiss, ooh, fire

Well, late at night, I chase you home
I say I wanna stay, you say you wanna be alone
You say you don't need me, but you can't hide your desire
'Cause when we kiss, ooh, fire

You've had a hold on me right from the start
It felt so good, I couldn't tear it apart
Got my nerves all jumpin', actin' like a fool
'Cause your kisses they burn, but your heart stays cool

Romeo and Juliet, Samson and Delilah
Baby, you can bet the love they couldn't deny
Well, now your words say split, but your words they lie
'Cause when we kiss, ooh, fire

Oh-oh, fire
Mm-mm, fire
Oh-oh, fire
Oh-oh, fire
