Dead Or Alive - Youthquake (All Cuts)


In the early days of the Dance Disco chart, Billboard magazine would not only list 12" singles but also 7" singles and Full LP's. Todays post is one of the few times that Billboard listed the entire LP.

Released in 1985 "Youthquake" was one of the best selling albums of that year. Every song on this LP is a must have for the dance floor.

Three songs from this LP charted seperately as a 12" single (You Spin Me Round, Lover Come Back To Me & My Heart Goes Bang), but, in August of 1985, clubs played the entire LP so often the whole LP charted. As a result....here is todays post.

YOUTHQUAKE
A1. You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)
A2. I Wanna Be A Toy
A3. DJ Hit That Button
A4. In Too Deep
A5. Big Daddy Of The Rhythm
B1. Cake And Eat It
B2. Lover Come Back To Me
B3. My Heart Goes Bang
B4. It's Been A Long Time

LP Charted on August 17, 1985. Spent 5 weeks on the chart and reached #30
