"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. It was also performed by British boyband Take That and Lulu in 1993.
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 for 6 weeks from December 12, 1979 to February 16, 1980 and became a popular standard in gay clubs. Loleatta Holloway is one of the featured vocalists on the record. The song's strings and horns were played by MFSB and conducted by long time MFSB member Don Renaldo.

"Relight My Fire" was revived in 1993 by Take That and featured guest vocals from Lulu reprising the Holloway role. The second of the band's eleven number-one hits, it topped the UK singles chart for two weeks in October 1993.
