A few weeks ago, NFPA's Dr. John Hall challenged readers of this blog to name songs that have "Fire", "Flame", or "Smoke" in their titles. Thanks to all of you who took the challenge - you came up with some good ones!

  • "Firehouse" - Kiss
  • "Fire" - Ohio Players
  • "Fire on High"- ELO
  • "Lake of Fire" - Nirvana
  • ""Fire it up" - Busta Rymes

As promised, here's Dr. Hall's list of the 100 or so highest-charting popular songs with "Fire", "Flame" or "Smoke" in the title, going back to the late 19th century.

Enjoy this look back on this Johnny Cash classic from 1963, "Ring of Fire".
