After the tragic loss of Pete Burns earlier this week, it seems only fitting that this week’s #ThrowbackThursday is Dead Or Alive‘s ‘You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)’.
The song was released back in 1984 and was later featured on their 1985 album Youthquake. The track reached Number 1 in the UK charts after 17 weeks of climbing and it has been re-released a handful of times since then; most recently in 2006 when it reached Number 5 again. It was also the first Number 1 hit to be produced by the Stock Aitken Waterman (Mike Stock, Matt Aitken & Pete Waterman) production trio.
The song is iconic of the 80s era and it’s easy to see why – it was part of the birth of synthpop – some of the music we have today wouldn’t be the same if it weren’t for 80s synthpop tracks like this!
Whatever you may have thought of Pete Burns and his band, it can’t be denied that this is an iconic song! What is your favourite Dead Or Alive song?
