This BP oil crisis is so frustrating, nothing we can do about it so instead of “fuming” over it, why not try to “lighten” up? So, today’s music thread is all about fuel, fire, burning, combusting, power, everything that “flows” from oil and energy.

So, let us begin with a mini tribute to BP’s first attempt to minimize damage from the oil spill:
