John Parr, that dude that wrote St. Elmo’s Fire, is jumping on the Tim Tebow bandwagon and has re-recorded his 1985 hit, which he’s renamed “Tim Tebow’s Fire (yes, my title is funnier), with Tebow friendly lyrics. Not exactly sure why he did that. Maybe he’s a huge Tebow fan, maybe he’s hoping to ride Tim’s popularity wave to a comeback of sorts, or maybe it’s because he’s going on tour this summer and this is a way to generate some press. My money is on the latter. Take a listen anyway, and if you like the song you can download it HERE (can’t imagine why you’d do that). I’ve also posted the original for the two people on earth who haven’t heard it.
Tim Tebow’s Fire
St. Elmo’s Fire
In unrelated news, I’m starting to feel bad for Tebow. His colleagues are giving him a hard time because he likes to pray, comedians are all over his ass, Christians want him to be the poster boy for every cause under the sun, 80′s musicians are dedicating songs to him, single woman across the globe want to deflower him (well that’s not so bad), and Katy Perry’s parents (weird folks) are reportedly trying to set him up with their recently divorced, quasi slutty daughter. That’s a lot of pressure for anyone. Why don’t we all just step back and let the kid breathe.
At any rate, although I’m not a football fan, I’m pulling for Tim and the Broncos when they come up against the Patriots this weekend. What can I say. I’m not a Brady fan either.
Let us know what you think about the song in the comment section.
