Bruce Springsteen's "I'm on Fire" is a portrait of pent-up tension. With its single artwork ablaze and the video's classic white car, the Born in the U.S.A. cut captures the all-consuming nature of desire. But beneath its steady synth, the song holds an existential quandary that feels downright depressive — something the very best covers of the track have captured.
