John Parr Has Rewritten “St. Elmo’s Fire” Into a Song About Tim Tebow
We all remember the John Parr classic 1985 jam “St. Elmo’s Fire (Man in Motion)” well, it’s now a song about Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow.
Who who do such a thing to a classic song like that? It was John Parr himself!
The song was originally written for Richard Hansen, a wheelchair-bound Canadian athlete who was giving inspirational speeches.
But of course, it became the theme song to the classic 1985 Brat Pack flick “St. Elmo’s Fire”, starring Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Andrew McCarthy.
