Rickie Lee Jones - Bonfires in Hell

Rickie Lee's 12th studio album in November called Balm in Gilead, this song is simply beautiful, about a recent breakup.

Rickie Lee Jones: "Favourite memories of 1978"
Swimming in the Tropicana pool late at night. I'd go over there and take off my clothes and swim in the pool, look up at the moon and imagine: so this is what it's like to be a movie star, to own the moon and the palms and the night air, to be beautiful and have the whole history of your life still approaching. Just swimming and imagining, being there, really being there in the water. I was bold. That's a good memory.
