Bruce Springsteen Once Wrote A Song For Elvis. Here's How It May Have Sounded

"Fire" eventually became a big hit for the Pointer Sisters.

It's the song that might have been: A tune written by Bruce Springsteen just for Elvis Presley.

"Fire" eventually became a hit for The Pointer Sisters, and Springsteen also did the song himself -- but The Boss had written it with The King in mind.

Springsteen was such a big fan that he even hopped the fence of Graceland in a failed bid to meet Elvis, according to Rolling Stone. 

Elvis died on Aug. 16, 1977, and likely never even heard the demo of the song Springsteen reportedly tried to send him. But now, Elvis impersonator Mark Wright gives us a glimpse of what might have been... putting a Kingly spin on the tune, along with his own version of what happened that night Springsteen tried to meet Elvis.

Check it out in the clip above.
