    "If You Can't Stand the Heat" is a single by UK pop group Bucks Fizz.

    Written by Andy Hill and Ian Bairnson and produced by Hill, the song became the group's fifth top 10 single (and seventh consecutive top 20 hit), eventually peaking at No.10 in January 1983.

    The lyrics of the song tell of someone who is manipulative, but when faced wth her own medicine, can't handle it, hence the song's title. [ [http://www.lyrics007.com/Bucks%20Fizz%20Lyrics/If%20You%20Can't%20Stand%20The%20Heat%20Lyrics.html Lyrics007.com | If You Can't Stand the Heat lyrics] ] The song was a change for the group in that it was the first single release where the two female members took the lead vocals on the track - according to the group by popular demand. It has also been noted that the faint reggae beat on the track gives it a slight variation on the group's usually straightforward pop. The song received a positive review from "Record Mirror" magazine, which complimented the song's production values. The Promotional Video depicts a day in the life of Bucks Fizz, featuring rehearsals, press interviews and culminating in a live performance.

    The song featured on the group's third album, "Hand Cut," released in 1983, while an extended 12" remix was released in tandem with the 7". The single came in two different picture sleeves - both with the same photographs, but with different coloured backgrounds - yellow and orange.

    An alternate mix of the song appeared on the group's 2005 compilation "The Ultimate Anthology."
