[edit] Dragon Fire

Dragon Fire was recorded in 1998. Unlike many of his songs, which are typically (but not universally) lyricless and of classical style, Dragon Fire is blatantly lustful.

The song's style is also unusual: A show tune. Opening and closing on a piano, a wide variety of instruments were used in the song, to create the illusion of an old-timey theatre band; the song is fast-paced, as suits the lyrics. One reviewer called it a "sexual power ballad;" another applauded it for having created "the first-ever cognitive link in [his] mind between furry porn and Broadway."

The lyrics are lustful, then longing, as the singer first describes a passionate night's tryst, then the memory. The lyrics are purposefully vague, using "I," "you," and "we" to; indeed, only one line even mentions the species of the lost lover. Thus, many furs can relate to the song; it does not mention the gender or species of the singer, or the gender of the dragon, so it can apply to many people, regardless of phenotype, gender, or gender orientation.
