Dead Or Alive – You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)

“You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)” is a song by British band Dead or Alive on their 1985 album Youthquake. The song was the first UK number-one hit by the Stock Aitken Waterman production trio. Released in November 1984, the record reached number one in March 1985, taking 17 weeks to get there. On the US Billboard Hot 100, it peaked at no. 11 on 17 August of that year. In 2015 the song was voted by the British public as the nation’s 17th favourite 1980s number one in a poll for ITV. Musician and actor Gary Kemp described the song as “one of the best white dance records of all time”.
The video, which features a disco ball, waving gold flags and an evocation of the six-armed Vishnu, was directed by Vaughan Arnell and Anthea Benton.
