If you speed up Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire” it sounds like Dolly Parton

More than 20 artists have covered Bruce Springsteen’s 1985 hit “I’m On Fire,” none of them Dolly Parton. However, if you take the song from 33 to 45 RPM, it turns out it sounds pretty darn close. Perhaps The Boss’ Southern drawl has always just been lost in the deepness of his voice. Anyway, this song is the opposite of slowing down Parton’s “Jolene” into a great cover; now to await the next sped-up or slowed-down song relating to Dolly Parton. Stay tuned.
