Sigue Sigue Sputnik – “Love Missle F1-11” – (1986)

I’m not really sure how to describe this song. Bizarre? Kinda. The band, whose name continues to mystify me, was a new wave band out of England and this was their only hit, its success helped by the song’s use in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. The tempo is ridiculous but it’s great fun to listen to, although the music video is so overlaid with sound effects that it’s hard to distinguish which sound effects are part of the song and which are from the video.
