"Signal Fire" is a song from alternative rock band Snow Patrol, appearing on the soundtrack of the film Spider-Man 3, released on 24 April, 30 April, 2 May and 14 May 2007, depending on the region. It was the only single released from the soundtrack. The song was initially offered to Shrek the Third. It was recorded at Grouse Lodge and was produced by long-time Snow Patrol producer Jacknife Lee.

The single was released as a special web-shaped vinyl in the UK and Ireland, where it proved to be a success in the charts, reaching the Top 5 in both countries. However, critical reception towards the single was generally mixed, with one critic calling it "unoriginal". The music video for the song was nominated for the "Best Video from a Film" category at the MTV Video Music Awards Japan 2008, but it did not win.
