I like Theory of a Deadmen, that's a cool cover of Wicked Game (which is an all-time favorite of mine).

Lots of folks have covered that song, and probably my favorite is this one by Giant Drag.

However, since the original was so great (and the chick in the video was so hot), I'll go ahead and post the original video, you know, for reference...

"I'm on Fire" is one of my favorites. Bruce was intrigued by slowing down Johnny Cash's "train" rhythm and had been thinking about lyrics. When the rest of the band was on break during a recording session, he and the drummer kind of flipped this on tape. Obviously, it got fleshed out a bit later, but the foundations were simple.

"Helter Skelter" is a great song that took on ugly overtones after being referenced by a maniac. Similarly, "I'm on Fire" can be looked at by overemphasizing the opening "Hey little girl, is  your daddy home?" part. I think Springsteen is being poetic throughout the song and didn't mean it to be overly pervy.

while I'm a big fan of banjos I prefer the Boss' rendition

Town Mountain reminds me of the Mountain Sprouts

Always thought that the Derailers' original song "Can't Stop A Train" was similar to the Boss's "I'm on Fire."  That might be why.

And I always interpreted that first line as him being quite a bit older, but both being of legal age, so not pervy at all.  It is interesting, however, what using a contemporary lens can do to the interpretation of song lyrics.  "Baby It's Cold Outside" is a pretty striking example of that and has gained recent notoriety because of it.

daddy back in the day obviously meant "boyfriend", not father

those lyrics back at the time made perfect sense to the public and were not creepy

folks these days are WAY too sensative and seem to search and create issues that really don't exist
