Do You Remember ‘Tim Tebow’s Fire’?

The last time the Broncos had a quarterback situation was 2012, when for a single day they had Peyton Manning and Tim Tebow on the roster at the same time, shortly after the creation of “Tim Tebow’s Fire.”

The  Denver Broncos quarterback quandary has dominated Broncos news since their Super Bowl win and subsequent retirement of Peyton Manning. This time, Manning and Tebow aren’t part of the discussion, but it does remind us of that special time in Bronco history when they were.

In 1985, English musician John Parr had a number one song with the movie hit “St. Elmo’s Fire- Man in Motion.” Nearly 30 years later, the song was reborn as “Tim Tebow’s Fire.”  The movie hit was written by David Foster and Parr, but it was Parr who took the liberty of modifying the lyrics to honor then Denver Broncos’ quarterback Tim Tebow.

According to ABC news, Parr was at the ESPN studios the day Tim Tebow signed with the Broncos. Being a huge fan of Tebow, he says they brought him a Tebow t-shirt,  which inspired him to change the lyrics to his #1 hit, sort of as a joke.

The lyrics read in part:

I can see a new horizon underneath the blazing sky. I’ll be where the eagle’s flying higher and higher. Going to be a man in motion. All I need is my Bronco team. Take me where the future’s lying, Tim Tebow’s fire.

The song was released in January of 2012. Two months later the Broncos signed Peyton Manning and the following day Tim Tebow was traded to the New  York Jets and the Tim Tebow era in Denver was over.

Tim Tebow may not be an NFL quarterback, but least he’s got his own song.
