"Fireworks" is a song written, produced and recorded by British rock band Siouxsie and 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 and 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 and 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.[1] "Fireworks" is the opening track of the 1992 compilation Twice Upon a Time: The Singles and now appears on the 2009 compact disc remastered version of A Kiss in the Dreamhouse.
