  • Lyrics
  • This was the theme from the 1974 disaster film The Towering Inferno. McGovern made a short appearance in the film.
  • Although this song was not much of a hit as a pop single, it won an Oscar for Best Original Song. One year after McGovern recorded it, it was included on her third album, Academy Award Performance.
  • Along with "The Morning After" (her biggest hit) and the Oscar-nominated song "Wherever Love Takes Me" (from the 1974 disaster film "Gold"), this song led the media to called McGovern "the Disaster Theme Queen." >>
