"My Heart Goes Bang" is a 1985 song by the British band Dead or Alive. It was the fourth and final single from the band's second studio album Youthquake. It charted at number 23 in the United Kingdom, number 12 in Japan, and became a dance hit in the U.S.

Remixes[edit]

A 7" remix and two 12" extended remixes of the single were released. The song was then remixed a third time for Dead or Alive's compilation album, Rip It Up, released in the fall of 1987.

"My Heart Goes Bang" was again remixed and re-recorded for Fragile and Unbreakable which were only available on Avex Label in Japan.

Music video[edit]

Parts of the music video depict lead singer Pete Burns in a leather jacket on the back of a motorcycle, and the band walking down a catwalk in sunglasses. No official music videos were released for the Japanese versions released in 2000.
