The infamous "fire" song, allegedly believed by Brian to be able to cause fires when first recorded in 1966/67. Although never released officially until 2004, the legendary original sessions can be seen on the "American Band" video, with the orchestra wearing fireman's hats.
The 2004 release remains a somewhat scary piece of music, although the live treatment of the song retained a sense of humor with the string and horn section wearing fireman's hats, and Brian sometimes pretending to put a fire out.
