Sophisticated Boom Boom is the debut album by the British pop group Dead or Alive, released in 1984 on Epic Records. Containing mostly synthpop and dance elements, the record was a minor success in the UK where it peaked at #29 and contained the band's first UK Top 40 single, a cover version of KC & the Sunshine Band's "That's the Way". That song, with "Misty Circles", were hits on the U.S. Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. The original cassette version of the album was released with three bonus tracks. In 2007, the album was re-released on CD by Cherry Red Records with seven bonus tracks. The cover photograph was taken by Peter Ashworth and was inspired by the cover of Kate Bush's Lionheart. The original title for the album was Mad, Bad and Dangerous To Know, but it was rejected by the label. It would later become the title of the band's third album.
