Song information[edit]

Like "Turn Out the Night", this song had the lyrics written by Pete Bellotte and the music was done by Giorgio Moroder, the Italian music and record producer. This was the second and last of two songs that Amy Holland had recorded for the Scarface soundtrack. The song plays two times in the movie in the scene where Tony Montana is dancing with Elvira seemingly flirting with her, and in the scene where Tony is talking to Officer Mel Bernstein and watching his sister Gina dancing with her boyfriend Fernando. Like "Scarface (Push It to the Limit)", "She's on Fire" appears in the film in a slightly extended version with a guitar solo during the instrumental break and a repeat of the second verse. It is unknown if the extended version heard in the movie was released on a 12" vinyl record. In 2001, for the soundtrack of the game Grand Theft Auto III, this song was featured on the Flashback 95.6 station.[1] The song was also used in the video game Scarface: The World is Yours. The rapper Lil Wayne sampled this song for his hit "On Fire" from his 2010 album Rebirth.[2]
