Dead or alive sophisticated boom boom remixed
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 (I Like It)". That song, with "Misty Circles", were hits on the U.S. Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart.

- Track listing
Although there was an unrelated Scottish female group called Sophisticated Boom Boom in the early 1980s, the title of the album derives from a Shangri-Las song of the same name, and alludes to the Sixties pop influences that crop up in the band's body of work — most explicitly here on the track "You Make Me Wanna".
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.
