Bursting Bubbles is a studio LP by the rock artist Kevin Coyne which was released in 1980.

The album was described by Penny Kiley of Melody Maker as follows:

"These are personal songs from people you'd rather not be. Sympathise at your peril. You can try to avoid the messages. The music is interesting and quite accessible. Often it's only the voice that hurts, while the music can be attractively rhythmic (anguish you can dance to) or even gentle. The music seems oblivious to the pain, yet it fits."

Coyne would later perform "Children's Crusade" as part of his concert, on 6 October 1982, at The Tempodrom, celebrating the fall of the Berlin Wall, the event captured in the German film The Last Wall directed by Diethard Küster.[1]
