OK - because I gave rapper FloRida some air time for his hit Right Round I thought the kids might like to know where the idea originally came from (why is music today SOOOO unoriginal). The British electro pop outfit Dead or Alive had a monster hit with this back in the 80's - in fact in many ways this track is just about the definitive 80's pop song. The clip is very simple, made for nothing, low concept (the band spinning slowly on a turntable as they sing the lyric and it doesn't tell any story - what it does have is a really great performance from front man Pete Burns - in several kooky outfits, the purple kimono and the now notorious eye patch and the moment of multiple arms. Looks to me like someone's having fun. Hope you enjoy this blast from the past.
For the best 80's hits keep coming back here
