Dead or Alive were an English pop band formed in 1980 in Liverpool. The band found success in the mid-1980s, releasing seven singles that made the UK Top 40 and three albums on the UK Top 30. They were the first band under the production team of Stock Aitken Waterman to have a number-one single. At the peak of their success, the lineup consisted of Pete Burns (vocals), Mike Percy (bass), Steve Coy (drums) and Tim Lever (keyboards).
The album is most famous due to the lead single "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)". 180 gram audiophile vinyl. Dead or Alive found success in the mid-1980s and sold over 50 million records worldwide. Founder and vocalist Pete Burns passed away in 2016 and since the band discontinued.
Listen free to Dead or Alive – Youthquake (You Spin Me Round (Like a Record), I Wanna Be A Toy and more). Youthquake is the second album by the British pop group Dead or Alive and was released in May 1985. This album was their commercial breakthrough in Europe and the United States, due to the single "You Spin Me Round", which was a UK number-one hit and a top 20 hit in the United States. Additional single releases included "Lover Come Back To Me", "In Too Deep" and "My Heart Goes Bang".
This album still sounds AMAZING today, and I NEVER tire of it. I only wish it would finally get re-released in remastered form and with 12" mixes, remixes, bonus tracks and new liner notes. You must know this album is awesome or you wouldn't be here looking at it. This is to let you know about the "extra tracks". The best news is that it has the Performance Mix of You Spin Me Round which always should have been on there since it was on the cassette version, as well as the Extended Mix of Lover Come Back to Me.
