“Burnin’ for You”: Blue Öyster Cult
If, in an act of love, you’re gonna set yourself on fire and literally burn for someone, make sure you’ve got the timing right. A gasoline-soaked human body can be reduced to ash in minutes. If you light up when your love pulls in the driveway and don’t know it’s gonna take them two-and-a-half minutes to park the car in the garage and retrieve the mail before entering their home, they could miss your smile through the love-flames when they get to the living room.
“Stone in Love”: Journey
Steve heard Sherry clap the mailbox closed. His Blue Jean Girl would soon be in the living room, aglow in his burning love for her. He flicked the Zippo open and alive and dropped it into his gasoline-soaked lap. The pain was immediate and ferocious. He smiled and held it as best he could, feeling it melt in more ways than one. But he remained focus, knowing the smile was needed for just a moment or two more.
The moments passed. Something was wrong. She should be in the living room right now, he screamed to himself, all thoughts now shrieked in agony. Above the crackle of his own burning flesh, he heard Sherry’s voice outside. She was talking to her neighbor, Carl. Carl could go on. Steve couldn’t.
“Too Much Time on My Hands”: Styx
The sheriff’s deputy leans out of the speeding squad car and sends a shotgun blast into the rear tire. Null and Void lose control of the stolen Cadillac and smash into a mailbox. Letters are spewed from the box and rain down through the engine smoke onto the hood of the Cadillac. Null and Void can’t do more time. Tired of losing and nothing left to do, they open the doors.
“Flying High Again”: Ozzy Osbourne
Null and Void were flying. At least that’s what it looked like for a second as the hail of bullets from the sheriff and his deputies took them off their feet and off this earth.
