9:30 Coffee Break: Hot Fire

Coffee Break
What songs do you want to hear for today's coffee break? (MPR Graphic / Tracy Kompelien)

This week, a New Jersey court ruled that a man who lowered his face to say grace over a sizzling plate of fajitas cannot sue the restaurant chain Applebee's over the minor facial burns he sustained in the incident.

Whether you're a person who prays or not, this story is a good reminder to all of us: When a server brings food to the table and cautions that the plate is hot, we should all take those words seriously.

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, we're putting together a playlist that's part public-service announcement, part Friday funny: To help us all remember not to burn ourselves on hot food, what songs that contain the words "hot", "fire" or "burn" do you want to hear?
