Flashback Friday Video : Dead Or Alive ‘You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)’

Recorded by Dead or Alive as part of their 1985 album, Youthquake ‘You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)’ was the very first #1 pop hit by the British production trio, Stock Aitken Waterman.

In the United States, the single peaked at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 and in 2015 it was voted Britain’s 17th favorite 1980s number one.

According to the band’s lead singer Pete Burns, the record company was originally so unimpressed by the song that he took out a bank loan to record it subsequent to which the record company called it ‘awful’ and ‘rubbish.’

Burns states that the band had to fund production of the song’s video themselves.
