Easily one of Harry Nilsson's hardest-rocking songs, "Jump Into the Fire" was a huge FM radio staple throughout the early '70s. Heavily influenced by the Rolling Stones, it would not have been out of place on one of their early-'70s albums. Lyrically, on the surface, it's a hot lovers plea; however, it could easily be taken as a plea to society as a whole. Like a lot of Nilsson's greatest songs, it works on many different levels. R&B legend LaVern Baker cut a hot version on Everybody Sings Nilsson.
