Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of the life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works

Wonder what Tim thinks about her burning down the house? Guess we should not complain do we really wanna see a picture of the talking heads? at least they got the lyrics right!

I think for Faith Hill, "Burning Down the House" takes on a more sinister, backwoods Southern Gothic meaning.
Report as inappropriate
Yes, looks like things could heat up around her.

Faith Hill could burn down my house.

I love that the lookup for this song is a Faith Hill picture. That doesn't make sense.

This version smacks the face off all other versions of this song. You can hear the variety and dynamics of the music so much better.
