Scott OT #155: The Night Thread Brings You… Fire! (12/18)

 

I’ve been binging Todd in the Shadows’ One Hit Wonderland series lately and I’ve come across a bunch of insane songs thanks to it. The most insane is easily Fire by The Crazy World of Arthur Brown.

It’s a song about the god of Hellfire sung by a guy in facepaint and with a flaming hula hoop on his head.

This song was a #2 smash, the only song that beat it was Hey Jude by The Beatles. Yes, the only song that could do better than it was the most famous song by the most famous band of all time. And yet, it’s mostly forgotten about today. Until I saw Todd’s video, I’d never heard of it.
