    I've read that's the first song Harris wrote. He try to play it in his band (Smiler) but the other guys founded it to difficult to play. So he preffer leave the band and create his own band. (you know the result...)

    Most of the Maiden elements are in this song, like tempo changes, harmonized guitars, good solos, etc...

    I don't know what the lyrics are about, but the title is explicit ! it's a sign for the future.

    I like this song and rank it 3,5/5

    You read wrong. This is a Ronnie Montrose song! [!--emo&:p--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/tongue.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'tongue.gif\' /][!--endemo--]

    It looks like you were talking about 'Burning Ambition' and Gypsy's Kiss [!--emo&^_^--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/happy.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'happy.gif\' /][!--endemo--]

    And it also looks like I screwed up. The title of the poll was indeed "Burning Ambition", and not "'I've Got The Fire"... Problem fixed, but I feel like a right git [!--emo&:unsure:--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/unsure.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'unsure.gif\' /][!--endemo--]

    Well, not the worst song they ever recorded, but also not one of the better ones... I think it is the only song that they released as a live rendition first, and then as a studio recording, and the recording line-up also changed a bit.

    good cover of a mediocre song [!--emo&;)--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/wink.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'wink.gif\' /][!--endemo--] I could easily live without it, but it's good as a b-side (alot better than those "Orchestral" versions nowadays...). 3 stars

    I would argue that the thread for this song should be in the piece of mind subforum, because that is tha album the studio version of the bside belongs to

    And I would argue back that the first version of this song to appear on a Maiden single was as a B-side to the Sanctuary single. Chronologically, it makes more sense like this.

    This was released as a live version first before a studio version, but so was Drifter which was also on the b-side of Sanctuary, which did not appear until the Killers album as a recorded version.

    A live version of this song is in the 1995 Iron Maiden cd re-release.  :)

    Nothing special... the lyrics are annoying.

    4/10

    I’ve Got the Fire has tons of energy, but Paul sounds like he’s killing his throat and the whole thing comes off a bit like a Motorhead recording.
