Dead Or Alive: You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)

"You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) was the first UK number-on hit for Dead or Alive and in the US it peaked at #11. The song still remains a club favorite over two decades later. Sonic markers of this song are the synth rock arranging, electronica and disco influences, and the use of techno synths. It's been used in today's pop culture and was included in the movie "The Wedding Singer," although it was sung by Adam Sandler. The song also is used as a basis for rapper Flo Rida's Billboard Hot 100 #1 hit, "Right Round."
