The lead singer of Dead or Alive, Pete Burns, dies at age 57 of cardiac arrest. Pete passed yesterday, Sunday, October 23rd. The band Dead or Alive was most famous for the 80’s hit “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)”. The song made it to #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1984 and was one of the more fun Pop/Dance songs that came out in the 80’s. It was in heavy rotation on MTV where the band’s look help propel them to success. They had another hit in 1986 that made it to #15 called “Brand New Lover”. The band didn’t do much more in the states, but they will live in music history as everyone knows that song “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record).
Rest in Peace!
