4Ever Songs: Dead or Alive “You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)”

Dead or Alive was an English New Wave-New Romantic-Synth-Pop band popular in the 1980’s and the very early ’90s. Their popularity mostly stemmed from their androgynous frontman Pete Burns.

Hailing from Liverpool, the band started in 1980.  After signing on with Epic Records, the singles started rocking the charts around 1984, with music videos on MTV giving the band a much needed boost. Their big hit that year, “You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)”, has gone one to become one of the most beloved 80s songs.
