Pete Waterman Reveals He Wrote "You Spin Me Round" On Cocaine
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.24.2012



The Daily Mail reports that Pete Waterman has confessed to doing cocaine while writing "You Spend Me Round (Like A Record)" for Dead or Alive.

Waterman is best known for the song, as well as songs by Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Bananarama and Rick Astley. He has worked with partners Mike Stock and Matt Aitken to create several popular songs, including "You Spin Me Around", the first to debut on the charts. It was produced during a 36-hour studio session while Waterman was using cocaine.

He said that the cocaine helped keep him awake while making the record under a tight deadline. Waterman also said that Dead or Alive singer Pete Burns presented three songs he wanted produced. He added: "I was desperate for money, and although I didn't quite hear a hit. I thought I could do a good job."

When Burns presented the demo of "You Spin Me Round", Waterman said to him: "We are not doing anything else. This is it. This is the song."

The success of that song caused other acts to notice him and he got more work as a result. He said: "It's the only time I have ever done cocaine in my life. Well, you know, how do you stay up for 36 hours?"

Waterman has a fortune of around $50 million now. A spokesman added: "Finally, Pete will get a bit of cred. Very rock 'n' roll."
