Pete Burns attacks ‘You Spin Me Round’ re-release

It’s out today but the Scouser is not happy

Pete Burns has expressed his dismay at the re-release of single ‘You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)’.

Interest in the Stock, Aitken and Waterman penned single – originally a number one hit for Burns’ band Dead Or Alive in 1985 – has been revived by the singer’s stint on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’.

Fans and newspapers campaigned for the track’s re-release today (January 30). However, when told of the decision Burns attacked the plans.

“I’m sick of that song,” the singer told Channel 4 presenter Davina McCall after leaving the ‘Big Brother’ house. “It’s like still wearing school uniform when you’re 50.”

The single has already been re-released once, when it reached number 23 in 2003, though this time it is expected to climb higher.

The ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ chart effect has already been felt by fellow housemate Preston’s band The Ordinary Boys.

Their single ‘Boys Will Be Boys’ returned to the Top Ten yesterday (January 29) at Nine, while the group’s second album ‘Brassbound’ has jumped up to 22 in the UK album chart.
