"I Love 'Sex On Fire' At This Point" - Kings of Leon No Longer Hate Their Biggest Song
Lyrics A number of reviewers have queried what "sex is on fire" means, with many opting for burning venereal disease. Lead vocalist Caleb Followill joked on his record label's website that "there's always been an element of sex in our music, so I thought I'd just wrap it all up in one song and be done with the sex for the rest of the record. Depending on whether a song starts with a melody or starts with lyrics, you know if it starts with a melody you just keep playing the melody over and over until you get it down and just throw in any lyrics that fit the verbal flow. Sex On Fire was just kind of a little lyric just to fill in to kill some time until we could actually write something that wasn't about sex and fire. Caleb told MTV News: And the things that I'm seeing make it look like I'm a pervert and I'm attracted to my family. Every night after recording we'd go to a bar together, hang out and talk about what we were going to do the next day, rather than all of us going to our separate homes.
