Today for SLS we are to find songs with the subject of ‘burn/fire/flame’. Thanks, Jim!

There were so many songs to choose from! I kept looking until I found this one. I hadn’t heard it before. I first saw this cover version of Ellie Goulding’s song, “Burn”, and I loved it! Then I listened to the original, and it’s great, too.

I got interested in the artists/musicians in the cover performance, and they have a lot of songs.

From Wiki:

Postmodern Jukebox, also widely known by the acronym PMJ, is a rotating musical collective founded by arranger and pianist Scott Bradlee in 2011. PMJ is known for reworking popular modern music into different vintage genres, especially early 20th century forms such as swing and jazz.

This is done in a Vintage 60s girl group fashion, featuring Robyn Adele Anderson. Their music can be found on Mud Hut Digital and Concord Records.

Note the flaming saxophone! Cool!

Verse 1]
We, we don’t have to worry ’bout nothing
‘Cause we got the fire
And we’re burning one hell of a something
They, they gonna see us from outer space
Outer space, light it up
Like we’re the stars of the human race, human race

[Chorus]
When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky

‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah, we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

[Verse 2]
We don’t wanna leave
No, we just gonna be right now, right now

And what we see, is everybody’s on the floor
Acting crazy, getting low go ’til the light’s out
Music’s on, I’m waking up
We start the fire, and we burn it up
And it’s over now, we got the love
There’s no secret now, no secret now

When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky

‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah, we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

[Bridge 1]
When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, burn, burn, burn, burn

[Bridge 2]
We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out

We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out

We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out

We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out

When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky

‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah, we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

[Outro]
When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky

‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah, we got the fire, fire, fire

And we’re gonna let it burn
