John Parr Remakes 'St. Elmos Fire' as 'Tim Tebow's Fire': John Parr, the British musician who had a No. 1 hit in 1985 with "St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion)," has rewritten the lyrics to turn it into "Tim Tebow's Fire." Sample lyric: "Gonna be a man in motion, all I need is my Broncos' team. Take me where the future's lying, Tim Tebow's fire."

Rob Lowe as Tim Tebow

I'm glad he took time out of what must be a packed touring schedule to give us this.

What's sad is you can really tell how it's mostly just dubbed over vice a new recording.

He even left a "St. Elmo's Fire" in at the end.

This is in the proud tradition of the Super Bowl Shuffle, okay? So stop hatin'.

Let's be honest, this is more in the tradition of: New England, The Patriots and We....

Dear sweet fluffy lord WHY?

Could Tim Tebow really just be the antichrist?

This seems like a nice place to mention that according to an NBC poll, 43% of people think Tebow's success is due to divine intervention.

Thankfully, Poll Position seems to be a place where people choose to vote in polls. My fallback excuse was going to be it's probably a phone poll and who the hell has a landline and answers it (other than old folks)?

Well, there is 3:58 of my life I will never get back.

Attention whore is being attention whorish. And I don't mean Mr, Tebow.

In case anyone didn't know, the original song (Man in Motion) was written by David Foster, a well respected Canadian song writer.

The lyrics were about Rick Hansen, a fellow Canadian who "wheeled" around the world (from 1985-1987) to raise money ($26million, or $50million in today's dollars) for spinal cord research.

In my mind, it's insulting to take a song about a genuine hero and pervert it to praise that of a sports hero.

Denver Nuggets mascot can't make backwards halfcourt shot until he Tebows.

Hopefully this works out as well for Tebow as Prince's effort did for Fav-er-uh.

Granted, I didn't see that coming. Well done again, stupid universe! Kudos!

(However, after listening to at LEAST half of that, I am now 50% worried/convinced that the Broncos are going to win the Super Bowl.)

Unlike Tebow, that mascot can put it in the hole.
