About Fire of Unknown Origin. It’s the intro of the album and the self-titled track, it’s also a rework of an Agents of Fortune B-Side.

Drums Albert Bouchard. Keyboards Allen Lanier. Guitars Buck Dharma & Eric Bloom.

Fire of Unknown Origin is BÖC’s eighth album and included the Top 40 hit Burnin' for You ( on Billboard’s Album Rock Tracks chart), it represented a resurgence of the group’s commercial standing after two albums with disappointing sales. The record would be the final studio LP featuring the band’s original lineup; during the subsequent tour, the band fired original drummer Albert Bouchard. The album continues BÖC’s tendency to write quirky songs, from the title track (featuring Patti Smith lyrics) to Joan Crawford. The album’s closing track, Don’t Turn Your Back, marks Allen Lanier’s final songwriting contribution to Blue Öyster Cult; it was played live by the group for the first time on June 17, 2016, at a special concert highlighting Lanier’s music. I think any BOC fan would salute this record. We’ve got Burnin’ For You, another big hit.

Fire of unknown origin took my baby away. Swept her up and off my wavelength. Swallowed her up like the ocean in a fire thick and gray. Fire of Unknown Origin.

Artist: Blue Öyster Cult. Album: Fire Of Unknown Origin. Translations: French. Death comes sweeping through the hallway, Like a lady's dress. Death comes driving down the highway, In it's Sunday best. A fire of unknown origin took my baby away. Swept her up and off my wavelength, Swallowed her up. Like the ocean in a fire, So thick and gray. Death comes driving, I can't do nothing! Death goes.
