Posted by DjPaulT on 5th April 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1979

Side One

DISCO FRIDAY!

“Vertigo/Relight My Fire” is a popular song which was written and released by Dan Hartman in 1979, when it topped the U.S. dance-music charts for six weeks.

Originally released in 1979 as the follow-up to “Instant Replay”, “Relight My Fire” topped the United States dance charts for six weeks from December 12, 1979 to February 16, 1980; it was less successful in the UK, however, where it failed to chart. Loleatta Holloway is credited as a featured vocalist on some versions of the record, singing the “strong enough to walk on through the night” refrain. The song’s strings and horns were played by MFSB and conducted by long time MFSB member Don Renaldo. The 12″ version includes a 4½-minute intro called Vertigo, often used in discos as a floorfiller before the song begins.
