Love Missile F1-1 (1986)
The video clip above features an 80s performance by Sigue Sigue Sputnik on BBC Top Of The Pops. The band's most successful single featured lots of vocal and sound effects, and like other songs used in the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off, this charted again after the film was released. This was also used in the computer game Grand Theft Auto - Vice City which was released in 2002.
Sigue Sigue Sputnik
With their outlandish looks and unique electro rock sound, Sigue Sigue Sputnik stormed into the UK charts in 1986 with their debut single "Love Missile F1-11". It reached No.3, following much publicity.
Their second single, 21st Century Boy only managed to reach No.20 in the UK charts, and that was the start of the slippery slope for Sigue Sigue Sputnik.
