20.3. Best Review: Chris MD's Task - Fiery Tunes

Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain” has been burning up the charts, which got me thinking about how many song titles include the word “fire.” For this task, you will select a song with the word “fire” in the TITLE, and then read a book where any of the MAIN words from the song title also appear in the book’s title or subtitle (series titles are not allowed). Articles and short prepositions don’t count (in or on = not OK; through or below = OK). For example, if you use “Set Fire to the Rain,” you could read any book with "set," "fire" or "rain" in the title. The word must appear exactly as it does in the song title. (There is one exception: Saint for St. is OK.)

I have provided a list of the best known fire songs (that I could find) below. Words that can be used for this task are in caps. You may use another song title, BUT YOU MUST CLEAR IT FIRST IN THE HELP THREAD. This is the only list the mods will check to approve a completed task.

REQUIRED: Include the song title you used in your post.
CHARIOTS of FIRE
COLD FIRE
FEEL that FIRE
FIGHT FIRE with FIRE
FIRE and DESIRE
FIRE and ICE
FIRE and RAIN
FIRE BURNING
FIRE EATER
FIRE ESCAPE
FIRE in the HOLE
FIRE LAKE
FIRE on HIGH
FIRE on the MOUNTAIN
FIRE WOMAN
GREAT BALLS of FIRE
HEART on FIRE
I DON’T WANT to SET the WORLD on FIRE
I’M on FIRE
INSIDE the FIRE
JUMP into the FIRE
LAKE of FIRE
LIGHT MY FIRE
PAPER and FIRE
PLAY with FIRE
RING of FIRE
ST. ELMO’S FIRE (Saint is OK)
SET FIRE to the RAIN
SEX on FIRE
SET ME on FIRE
SET the WORLD on FIRE
SMOKE from a DISTANT FIRE
the FIRE DOWN BELOW
THROUGH the FIRE
WE DIDN’T START the FIRE

Chris (chrismd) | 965 comments Additional approved songs

Note to Mods: "I" (as in I Don' Want to Set the World on Fire") is acceptable. It's a noun, so it's a major word.

BLOOD FIRE WAR HATE
COMIN' UNDER FIRE
FIRE and WATER
PATH of ENDLESS FIRE
WORDS & FIRE
FIRE from a GUN
LOVE like FIRE
METAL FIRE from HELL
FIRE FOREVER
This PLANET'S on FIRE (BURN in HELL)

Stacie (shorty_320) | 1382 comments As soon as I saw your tasks, one of my favorite songs came to mind, one that's not on the list: "Words & Fire" by the Sam Roberts Band. Hoping it will be acceptable to use the word "words" for the task...

Unfortunately the plural won't work BUT.... I did find a song called Metal Fire From Hell." Looks like that would work for you. Just use that title when you claim your points. I'll put that and the title of your book in the approved list.
