The Fire Down Below by Bob Seger
Album: Night MovesReleased: 1977
This song is about the prostitution industry. Seger points out that the customers come from many different backgrounds and that this thing goes on all over the world. The "fire down below" is the desire these guys all share for the ladies of the night.
Ann Landers criticized this in one of her newspaper columns for glorifying sex.
Seger would later take heat from Tipper Gore and the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC) for the sexual content in another one of his songs, "The Horizontal Bop."
