Arthur Brown - Fire

This is new to me, though I recognize the opening line as a sample used by Prodigy but I thought it good fun, could only imagine what it came across like in 1968...

Ohhh that one is best left forgotten, though I understand Arthur Brown recently had a resurgence in popularity. Back in the day the song was the source of much hilarity. Burn, baby, burn. Actually saw them open for the Who or someone one time back then. Lots of flashpots on stage and I think he/they did Fire at least three times, I think they may have had limited material to draw from

one love

Wasn't aware of any resurgence, I just happen to find it during a youtube rabbit hole, quite randomly...I'm sure it gets old fast ...but amusing for a moment or two..

I think it’s freaking awesome, but I wasn’t around back then, my reference point when first hearing it was being a Deep Purple fan and recognizing where Ian Gillan picked up his signature wail.

Love Athur brown. Saw him a few years back - he walked over rows of seated old timers with his head on fire during that tune. 10/10.
Love to all
