Tuned In: Elvis Costello Does Springsteen’s “Fire” On Fallon

by (@kat_george)

Want to see one rock legend cover the song of another rock legend? Well here you go: Elvis Costello covering Bruce Springsteen‘s “Fire” on Jimmy Fallon’s Springsteen Week (which kicked off on Monday with The Boss & E Street Band playing “We Take Care Of Our Own”). Try not to let your head explode, because that would suck for you and also, gross. But this really is a treat to behold — Costello’s husky vocals fit Springsteen’s lyrics perfectly, and with The Roots providing funky, summery beats, the song transcends either artist, and just becomes something of an icon in itself. Costello’s rendition might not have the raw, gritty sex appeal of Springsteen’s, but it has all the romance and desire, and we’d be happy to just sit here all day and alternate between the two, thank you very much.
