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 seventeen weeks to get there. In the US, it peaked at #11 in September of that year.

The video was directed by Vaughan Arnell and Anthea Benton.
The strings were based on Richard Wagner's classical piece Ride of the Valkyries. The song is in 4/4 time and in the key of F# minor
You Spin Me Round" was re-released in 2003 at the same time as the Dead or Alive greatest hits album Evolution was released. The song reached #23 in the UK singles chart. It was re-released again on 30 January 2006 because of lead singer Pete Burns' controversial time as a contestant on television series Celebrity Big Brother and reached #5.

Earlier remixes were in 1996 and 1997 (some are included on the US, European and Australian releases of Nukleopatra). In 1999 these mixes were issued in the US as a 2CD set. The first disc held seven mixes of "You Spin Me Round" while disc two has five mixes of "Sex Drive". In 2000, new mixes appeared on Fragile and in 2001, on Unbreakable: The Fragile Remixes. No videos were made for these.

Notable cover versions include recordings by Thalía on her 2002 self-titled album. A cover was featured in Konami's 2009 video game Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party. The song's chorus was used as the basis for Flo Rida's 2009 number one single, "Right Round". Danzel and Gigi D'Agostino have also done remixes. Alvin and the Chipmunks covered the song for the movie, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel and the movie's soundtrack. In 2008, Thea Gilmore did a cover called "You Spin Me Right Round" alongside with Mike Cave, giving the song a more folk pop touch. After its initial release as a separate single, it was included in newer pressings of her album Liejacker. Adam Sandler performed the song to open the film The Wedding Singer. There is also another version featured in the red-band trailer of Hot Tub Time Machine. The French band Indochine also covered the song on their 2009 album La République des Meteors.
