Five Best...Songs about Burning

#5. "I'm on Fire" by Jerry Lee Lewis

Help me mister fireman, please
You know I'm burning from my head to my knees
I'm aflame with such a burning desire
A little girl set my soul on fire
She's got me burning up like a paper cup
Hmmm, hmmm, I'm on fire


#4. "Beat the Retreat" by Richard Thompson

I'm beating my retreat
Back home to you
I'm beating my retreat
Back home to you
I'm burning all my bridges
I'm burning all my bridges
I'm burning all my bridges
I'm running back home to you


#3. "Burning Love" by Elvis Presley

Lord almighty, I feel my temperature risin'
Higher higher, it's burnin' through to my soul
Girl, girl, girl, you gonna set me on fire
My brain is flamin', I don't know which way to go
Your kisses lift me higher
Like a sweet song of a choir
You light my mornin' sky with burnin' love


#2. "London's Burning" by The Clash

London's burning with boredom now
London's burning dial 99999


#1. "Burning Down the House" by Talking Heads

Watch out, you might get what you're after
Cool baby strange but not a stranger
I'm an ordinary guy
Burning down the house
