Hans Worst Hits of the 80’s- Fire Lake- Bob Seger. The song was originally going to be on Seger’s 1975 album Beautiful Loser- but it wasn’t finished. Seger should have left it at that. After two big hit albums- that were critical and commercial successes- I found Against The Wind a big disappointment and a pretty bad album to be honest. I liked Night Moves and Stranger In Town- and I like a lot of his earlier stuff before he ‘hit it big’ and I really wanted to like Against The Wind. I certainly remember listening to it a lot in early 1980 but it just didn’t do it then or now. The album seems full of play it safe- craft man written songs. What a boring album. I really can’t say I like a single song on the album- and the singles Fire Lake #6, Against The Wind #5, You’ll Accomp’ny Me #14 and The Horizontal Bop #42 were only on the charts due to the fact it was Bob Seger. A lazy album and Fire Lake with backing vocals by The Eagles. Reading a quote from Seger- Fire Lake is one of his favorite songs- it is about ‘taking risks”- odd because the album “Against The Wind” is all about playing it safe, not taking chances. And poor Bob on Fire Lake sounds like he is trying to make a bowel movement. He grunts his way though the song. AWFUL!
