"Gone Up in Flames" is the debut single by English rock band Morning Runner, from their debut studio album, Wilderness Is Paradise Now. The song was first released on 1 August 2005 and reached number 39 in the UK Singles Chart; the song contains three narratives: a racetrack loser, a devastated mourner, and a possessive consumer. Lead singer Matthew Greener explained, "They are all pictures of desperation. I got told this story about a woman so obsessed with this pearl that she sold all her possessions just to own it."[citation needed]

The song also features on the soundtrack of the video game FIFA 07, and an instrumental version is the main theme tune to the BAFTA Award-winning sitcom The Inbetweeners.
