Here’s a bespectacled Luke LaLonde of Born Ruffians sitting at a bar with an acoustic guitar, playing Bruce Springsteen’s steamy 1985 single, “I’m on Fire”. LaLonde, with his mild mannerisms and bipolar vocals, is plaintive where Springsteen is assertive. The original version is insistent, as though the Boss doth protest too much, and this cover almost seems to lament his entranced desire. Check out the video below.
