"Relight My Fire" is a popular song which was written and released by Dan Hartman in 1979, when it topped the charts for weeks. It was also performed by British boyband Take That in 1993.

Dan Hartman version

Originally released in 1979 as the follow up to Disco classic "Instant Replay", "Relight My Fire" written and performed by Dan Hartman topped the dance charts in 1979 and became a popular standard in gay clubs. Loleatta Holloway is one of the featured vocalists on the record. The 12' version includes a legendary 6-minute intro, used often in disco's as a real floorfiller before the song breaks loose.

Take That cover

"Relight My Fire" was revived in 1993 by Take That and featured guest vocals from Lulu reprising the Holloway role. The second of the bands ten Number One hits, it reached the top of the UK singles chart for two weeks in October 1993. It was the first number one single for Lulu and at the time broke the record between an act's chart debut and their reaching number one, happening 29 years 148 days after her debut with 'Shout! in 1964.
