"Just like Fire Would" is a song by Australian alternative rock band, the Saints, which is written by the band's lead singer, Chris Bailey, and was released as a single in March 1986.[1][2][3] It was the lead single from their seventh studio album, All Fools Day (April 1986),[2] and peaked at No. 29 on the Kent Music Report Singles Chart.[4] It was produced by Hugh Jones, who had co-produced the album with Bailey.[5] AllMusic's John Dougan reviewed All Fools Day and opined, "One listen to songs as grabbing as 'Celtic Ballad' or the great 'Just Like Fire Would' (which is kind of a neat pun) will convince you that despite the differences, the new Saints were a good band for completely different reasons than the old Saints."
