"Dazzle" is the third single from the 1984 Siouxsie & the Banshees album Hyæna. The song begins with a gradual fade-in of an orchestral strings section and progresses to a drum-driven, majestic anthem. The lyrics "swallowing diamonds/a cutting throat" came after watching the final scene of Marathon Man where Laurence Olivier puts diamonds in his mouth.

"Dazzle" climbed to number thirty-three on the UK singles chart and was Siouxsie & the Banshees' eleventh top-forty UK hit.

Swallowing diamonds
A cutting throat
Your teeth when your breath
Reflecting beams on tombstones

A jamboree of surprises
Playing Russian roulette
Or…
