The Horror Honeys: Saturday Gamer Jam - "I Don't Want To Set The World On Fire"

Saturday Gamer Jam - "I Don't Want To Set The World On Fire"



I don't want to set the world on fire
I just want to start a flame in your heart
In my heart I have but one desire
And that one is you
No other will do
I've lost all ambition for worldly acclaim
I just want to be the one you love


While this sweet love song from 1941 was a much requested chart-topper, there's something utterly creepy and oddly poignant about hearing it over a backdrop of the ruins of 2008's Fallout 3.  Songs by the Ink Spots have been featured heavily in Fallout franchise. I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire and Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall are featured on the in-game radio station Galaxy News Radio in Fallout 3. I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire is also featured on the game's trailer, and opening for the game. The inclusion of The Ink Spots' songs in Fallout and other games has sparked a renewed interest in The Ink Spots' work among newer generations in recent years. The teaser trailer for Bethesda's game is a haunting tribute to a simpler time.  ~HH
