Light My Fire is the second studio album by Spanish duo Baccara, first released on label RCA-Victor in West Germany in August 1978. It contains the European hit singles "Darling" and "Parlez-Vous Français?", their entry for the 1978 Eurovision Song Contest. Baccara represented Luxembourg, performed their song in French and although they undoubtedly were the biggest stars participating in that year's contest they surprisingly only finished in 7th place.

The rights to the RCA-Victor back catalogue are currently held by Sony BMG Music Entertainment - the original Light My Fire album in its entirety remains unreleased on compact disc.
