Is it soft rock, pop, or country? Seems to me the inaugural Earworm Masters song is a little bit of all three. The smooth melodies mixed with a story filled with mystery kept half of America fixated on what the song was about. In fact, the song Wildfire came from a dream Michael Murphey had, one which hinged on a story told by his grandfather.
I can still hear the hum of the tubes in my AM Radio when listening to this.
If you’re my age – forty something or more – you know the chorus, word for word. Don’t worry…it’s not a bad thing 🙂
