FMD 5/12/17 – Fire

I live on a farm site. There is a large grove. In that grove are a few piles of... stuff. Yesterday afternoon one of those piles spontaneously combusted, so a lot of time was spent hauling water out there and moving sprinklers around and just standing around looking at the flames and/or embers.

Anyway, give us your best "fire" song, and be as creative as you feel inspired to be.

  1. Spontaneously combusted? I suddenly feel that my entire life is very boring.

    1. Well there wasn't any external heat source, so I guess that's what you'd call it?

      1. That's what folks get for putting coke bottles and oily rags on the same part of the pile.

        1. Pretty sure this particular spot was exclusively (or nearly) biological materials.

        2. I have a friend that had batteries and pennies create a fire in his pocket. Really wish I would have been there.

    1. Pursuant to the above - YHF was my first exposure to music outside radio (Top 40 & Oldies) and had such a transformative effect. "Heavy Metal Drummer" is my absolute favorite Wilco song. Though the fiddle on "Jesus, Etc." might be my favorite use of an instrument.
