John Parr, whose “St. Elmo’s Fire (Man in Motion)” became an international rock smash in the 1980s, has reworked its lyrics in honor of Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow.
Seriously. Parr personally recorded “Tim Tebow’s Fire” (below).
“I was inspired by Tim Tebow, so I wanted to modify the lyrics … in his honor of the way he lives his life as being a great example,” Parr told FOX31 Denver.
Words fail us, but fortunately Parr has us covered. Listen:
The great thing about this “St. Elmo’s Fire” cover is that it’s not really a cover. It sounds just like Parr’s title track to the 1985 Demi Moore-Rob Lowe film.
In “Tim Tebow’s Fire,” he sings, “I can see a new horizon underneath the blazin’ sky. I’ll be where the eagle’s flyin’ higher and higher. Gonna be your man in motion, all I need’s my Broncos team. Take me where my future’s lyin,’ Tim Tebow’s Fire.”
They’re still going to be demolished by New England, but amen.
