My Heart's a-Burnin'
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
"My Heart's a-Burnin'" is the ritual song Olivia sings to summon the Fire Vellumental Cave in Paper Mario: The Origami King. It is learned after she, Mario, and Professor Toad study the mural in the Snif City Royal Hotel's suite, which suggests that it must be performed by someone with a "melodic voice" and "mega pipes", and depicts body movements that must be performed as part of the incantation. After the party practice it, Olivia can then sing it at the ritual stand in the Scorching Sandpaper Desert.
When Olivia performs the ritual, the song is revealed to be a J-pop-style song while Mario and Professor Toad dance while holding glow sticks and the bird statues dance with jets of fire emitting from their wings emulating glow sticks. After the performance, confetti is released while applause can be heard and the Fire Vellumental Cave appears.
Later on in the game, the song may also play in the Sudden Death round in Shy Guys Finish Last, where the word "aflame" is replaced with a question mark and the player has to recall the word by selecting one of four answers. "Aflame" is listed as answer D, while the other three, incorrect choices are "insane", "the same", and "a game" (answers A, B, and C respectively).
The song can be played in the Sound Gallery in the Musée Champignon, where it is listed as song number 102.
