"Fireworks" is a song written, produced and recorded by English rock band Siouxsie & the Banshees in 1982. It was released as a stand-alone single in between the Banshees albums Juju and A Kiss in the Dreamhouse.
The song marked a change in direction for Siouxsie & the Banshees, as the band began to record more elaborate, lush, and musically complex songs ("Fireworks" opens with an orchestral string section). A Kiss in the Dreamhouse is widely considered to be the beginning of Siouxsie & the Banshees' "experimental" period and this single helped to set the stage for that album. "Fireworks" peaked at number twenty-two in the UK singles chart. It did not appear on any Banshees albums until the 1992 compilation Twice Upon a Time: The Singles.
