You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" is a song originally released by Dead or Alive on their 1985 album Youthquake. The original cut was over four minutes long and was edited for the album. The unedited version was released on an '80s CD called Monster '80s Volume Two.

This song was the first UK number-one hit for the Stock Aitken Waterman production trio. Originally released in November 1984, the record reached number one in March 1985, taking seventeen weeks to get there. In the US, the single peaked at #11 in September of that same year

"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 only reached number twenty-three in the UK singles chart, however the single was re-released again on January 30, 2006 due to lead singer Pete Burns' controversial time as a contestant on television series Celebrity Big Brother, and reached number five. Earlier remixes were in 1996 and 1997 (both included on the U.S. release of Nukleopatra), and on Fragile and Unbreakable: The Fragile Remixes. No videos were made for these, however. It is also interesting to note that the 1996 remix bears a few similarities to Haddaway's "What Is Love?", while the 2003 Metro remix is obviously based on Kylie Minogue's "Can't Get You out of My Head" (several interviews with Burns have him stating he was jealous of her for that song and he wished he had done it). The latter also contains a small (uncredited) sample from Madonna's "Die Another Day" (the "uuh" vocal, right before the second verse kicks in).
