"Fire Down Below" is the title song to a 1957 movie of the same name. It was performed by Jeri Southern, who had a top-30 hit with it. Shirley Bassey recorded the song shortly thereafter, and had a minor hit with it in the UK. It appears on her album "The Bewitching Miss Bassey."

Shirley, Timmy Monster, and some Whatnots sing the song on episode 504 of The Muppet Show. The number is set in a gold processing plant, in keeping with the "gold" theme of the show.
