52 Songs for 52 Weeks: Week 13 – Fire Lake by Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band

Who wants to break the news about Uncle Joe?

When I was a young man, I didn’t listen very much to Bob Seger. 

But when you get a little older, and you get some miles on your odometer, you realize that Bob seger wrote an awful lot of songs that you can relate to.  He writes songs about life and so when you lived a little – suddenly Seger hits the mark, and you think “I get what he is singing about here.”

Fire Lake is about taking chances in life and all the excitement and fun associated with that risk.

Who wants to play those eights and aces?  Seger asks in reference to the famous “Dead Man’s Hand.”  Wild Bill Hickock was holding a pair of eights and a pair of aces when he was murdered during a card game in Deadwood South Dakota on Aug 2, 1876. 

I like that kind of stuff in songs.
