«Eternal Flame» is a song by The Bangles from their 1988 album Everything. It became a hit single, when released in 1989, peaking at number one in the charts in nine countries, including Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It was written by popular songwriters Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly and The Bangles’ own Susanna Hoffs. With this song and «Walk Like An Egyptian«, The Bangles became only the third all-girl group to score multiple no.1’s in the United States.

Unlike the rest of the more uptempo pop songs on their album Everything, «Eternal Flame» is a ballad. Co-writer Billy Steinberg describes it as «The Beatles meet The Byrds«.
