Jump Into the Fire

Recorded/Published: June 1971
"Jump Into the Fire" was featured in the film Goodfellas.

"My earlier stuff had the same soul in it, only it was more subtle." -- Harry Nilsson

The drum "solo" in "Jump Into the Fire" is really a duet. While mixing the song, Nilsson played the tracks recorded by the two percussionists, Jim Gordon and Roger Pope, and was amazed. "It was like two people walking on the beach leaving one set of footprints."

Song Ratings/Reviews
 
Jump Into the Fire
(2.0 / 4.0)
Roger Smith
(2.0 / 4.0)
This is one of those songs I really didn't like when I first heard it. But it's grown on me.
Joseph Skade
(1.0 / 4.0)
A trifle overindulgent. The crispness of Nilsson's earlier work is nowhere in evidence. But of course there is always the voice.
Nicholas Leddy
(3.0 / 4.0)
the song was ahead of its time...taking advantage of quadrophonic sound, making the music bounce around the room or car.
Robert Cubinelly
(4.0 / 4.0)
Personally speaking, for a rocker at heart like me, I say this is Harry's BEST song ever! Love the very 'psychedelic', chunky style of this song and to listn to Harry sing that way has always given me the kick inside!! Good on ya Harry!! Rob
