You Spin Me Round – Dead or Alive


I know some of you will have experienced this song from ‘meatspin’ or The Wedding Singer (which I where I first heard it properly). Right now I’m a bit bored and am listening to a friend’s music playlist (on their I-Pod). This came on and here I am, reviewing it. Hope ya like it!

Well, been a while since I reviewed the older music. Here’s my piss-poor attempt at recovering my reviewer’s composure. I hope it lasts!

I start out with the music. It’s a very 80’s sound, with a definite keyboard and synthesiser sound to it. It fits in with the kind of songs you’d expect to hear at a disco, which makes it perfect. It demonstrates the whole disco era in just 3 short minutes. Is it great? No. Is it good? Yes. Remember, I like songs from the 60’s to the 90’s, so this is definitely a winner.

Vocally, the best thing for it is the fact it’s in English. It might not sound it, though. I cannot understand a large majority of the verse words, so I rely on the chorus, which I think stands out well. We all know it, so we can all sing it on the way home from the pub, tonight. I’m going! Who’s with me? The chorus is a group vocal, which means that it signifies unity within the band and as such, scores highly with me!

Now, I’ve just hit a key-combination which has screwed up the editing function and I don’t know how to fix it, so any mistakes from here are un-fixable! Sorry!

The pace of the song is pretty good. It demonstrates that you don’t need to rush, yet you need to be quick, much like when reviewing something. Take too long and you start to over-evaluate. You don’t want that. I don’t want that. No-one wants that. Back to the song!

My favourite lyrics? Well, here’s the chorus…

‘You spin me right round, baby
right round like a record, baby
Right round round round
You spin me right round, baby
Right round like a record, baby
Right round round round’

 Finally, what do I think? Well, the song’s great. It’s got this whole 80’s feel, which I’m sure you know I love, and it works brilliantly with the whole spinning idea. I especially like the ‘AaaaAaaaAaah’ which the singer does towards the end. It suggests he is in fact being span around. That’s the point. Time for a final score.

8/10
