 The Strangeloves recorded "I'm on Fire" themselves - it was the B-side of their first single (Swan 4192)

 Thanks Bill, I'll answer to either ;-)
Perhaps you could add a comment to the Sonny Burgess record about that - Jules

 Juke Jules, do we call you Juke or Jules ? The gob iron player on
the Sonny Burgess Sun 45 is actually Billy Riley. Funny you mention Sonny though, cos he is in my top 5 faves, his output on Sun was phenomenal,
Get the Bear Family double CD set for the lot, Brilliant stuff.

 Gob Irons are a no no on Rock n roll records, unless, of course it's Little Walter
Oh what an invitation, Bill! - "or unless it's Sonny Burgess"

 Yes, a great song that should have been a hit. Interesting writers, Feldman, Goldstein, Gottehrer, who are of course the Strangeloves of 'I Want Candy' fame.

 Yes, this is indeed a good record. I remember it getting played on TYLS and Janice 'oi'l give it foive' Nichols said it was too much like 'Great Balls of Fire' and only gave it a low score. Don't care much for the B side, Gob Irons are a no no on Rock n roll records, unless, of course it's Little Walter.

 David McKee's informative mini-bio against Jerry Lee's 'Lewis Boogie' mentions this Mercury cut, which I've always felt came close (but not quite close enough) to those early hit singles. For all that, it's a disc that deserved more plays, but received virtually none this side of the water that I can recall.
