List Rules This list includes both literal and figurative meanings of the word fire.

This list contains information about songs about fire, ranked by your votes. Are you a fan of songs about flames and things burning? Fire songs by rappers, rock stars and folk singers can be found on this list of songs about fire. Whether you prefer songs about the figurative fires of love or the literal fires of burning something to the ground, this list has everything you are looking for when it comes to fire songs.

James Taylor wrote the beautiful folk song, “Fire & Rain,” back in 1970 and its fires of popularity still burn strong today. Of course, “Light My Fire” by The Doors made our list of the best songs about fire, as did the Johnny cash hit, “Ring of Fire.”
