Spark to a Flame: The Very Best of Chris de Burgh is the third compilation album by Chris de Burgh, released by A&M Records in 1989. The album was released largely to capitalise on the resurgence of de Burgh's career after the smash hit of The Lady In Red three years earlier. As a result, most of the tracks are drawn from his 1980s albums The Getaway, Man On The Line, Into The Light and Flying Colours.

Also notable is the pairing of the songs "Borderline" and "Say Goodbye To It All" - originally from two different albums, which tell a story arc of a conscientious objector fleeing to be with his lover.
