First off, I must start off this review with some good news. As many know, there have been rumours floating about the various things that this song is about. I wanted to research for myself because the truth seeker in me wanted to know the true meaning of the song after I read both the positive and negative reviews for this song. The positive news is that it is a fact that this song implies a pleasing sexual relationship with excellent sex that is always going to be happily permanent in someone's mind. I got this information from songfacts.com, where it quotes the lead singer (Caleb Followill) directly stating in the September 19, 2008 issue of The Sun newspaper that this song is about (in Caleb's own words: "It's about a great sexual relationship with hot, hot sex that you remember for ever.") Many who read this review are going to correctly argue that the lyrics in the song are very obvious (and straightforward) that it is about good sex in an equally fun sexual relationship. However, it was important to me to share where I obtained my information for anyone else that wanted to find the meaning of the song straight from any articles that ask the direct source (the lead singer Caleb Followill), and because of the rumours flying around regarding the song's meaning. This song has very strong guitar riffs, and I enjoyed the daring lyrics that were utilized in the song (such as when he sings about what he pictures happening when he is driving). The video is very good as well. The obvious way to decide if you are going to want to buy this song is if you are comfortable and fine with listening to a song that illustrates the fun and good side of a strictly sexual relationship of how it feels to have sex with someone who is talented in giving such pleasure (in addition to liking rock music).Read more ›

The 1st Time I heard Sex On Fire, I was amazed at the sensual vocals. I had to go out and buy EVERY CD put out by Kings of Leon and even their B-Side singles. Caleb Followill has the most unique voice I have ever heard. Their past work really needs to be discovered by the masses. Go out and get Because of the Times, my favorite KOL CD but even Youth and Young Manhood and Aha Shake Heartbreak are both great CDS. Just an incredible body of music. AND don't get me started on their B-Sides... GEMS... that deserve their very own CD... Beneath the Surface and Frontier City!!! soooo great... and so many more B-sides...

Not a Kings of Leon fan; however, there is something about this song that just strikes a cord so much I bought it in a ringtone, too. Can't understand all the lyrics but the guy's voice as a resonating sound that just makes the song even sexier than the title.

I first heard this song months ago after seeing it on a top something or other chart and listening to it through a download service. I didn't get through the whole thing before turning it off.

Then a couple of days ago, while looking through my cable company's OnDemand menu of all things, I heard it again as part of an advertisement for a concert with behind the scenes interviews. For days, that song haunted me. There's really no other word for it. I couldn't get that wail out of my head. I never was able to find that concert on OnDemand so I ended up back at my download service. I listened to the song again. Not just this song but the entire album.

When you listen to song after song, the band's flaws become obvious even to a tin ear like myself. They don't play that well. Sounds like if they got anything too complicated to play, they'd be in real trouble. The lyrics are often awful if not downright unintelligible. "We'll teach this city to kiss these thighs" (or some such nonsense). And the singer doesn't have that great of a voice. And you can only sometimes understand what's he's singing to begin with.

But you know what? All those "negatives" come together and cancel each other out enough to make a couple of really good songs. The hook is catchy, the music just right and the singer's wail is pitch perfect. (no pun intended).

"Sex on Fire" and "Use Somebody" are my favorites. But I also enjoyed "Closer", "Revelry" and "17". I ended up buying the entire album.

I first learned of this group in Fifty Shades of Grey. I had heard this song before, but never realized who recorded it. Since then, I have really fallen for their songs.

The song is hot! Enough said but this program wont let it be enough! Arrrrrrggggggg! Going beyond this takes flavor away from the meaning of what was written.

The download is fast and easy with the Amazon MP# downloader tool. It even added it to my Windows Media player for me. Great sound quality too!
