"Goodbye Cruel World" is a song by the British pop act Shakespears Sister, released in 1991 as the lead single from their second album Hormonally Yours. Initially, the song had little commercial impact, reaching #59 on the UK Singles Chart. Following the success of the album, the song was re-released as a single in July 1992, slightly remixed, this time reaching #32.

The video for "Goodbye Cruel World" was directed by Sophie Muller, who had previously worked with the band on several videos for their first album. The video features Fahey and Detroit spoofing famous melodramas such as Sunset Boulevard and What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?.

Shakespears Sister is an English pop and alternative rock musical act that was formed 1988 by singer–songwriter Siobhan Fahey, a former member of Bananarama. Based in the United Kingdom, Shakespears Sister was initially a solo act, but by 1989 it had become a duo with the addition of the American musician Marcella Detroit. Together they released two Top 10 albums and a string of Top 40 hits, including the 1992 hit "Stay" which peaked at No. 1 in the UK for eight consecutive weeks. Detroit was sacked from the band in 1993, leaving Fahey as the sole member again until she ended the project in 1996. After working under her own name for some years, Fahey revived the Shakespears Sister name in 2009. In 2019, Fahey and Detroit reunited as Shakespears Sister for a tour and released a single, "All the Queen's Horses".
