In the 1980s, music defined the moment. "Video Killed the Radio Star" ushered in MTV, "Don't You (Forget About Me)" ruled "The Breakfast Club, " and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" became the anthem of a generation. But it wasn't just the music -- what was seen was nearly as important as what was heard. Every new single hit the stands wrapped in an eye-catching sleeve that reflected the hottest trends. "You Spin Me Round" is a fascinating journey through the songs and images of that decadent decade. Color illustrations of 300 sleeves, representing nearly every prominent '80s artist, are augumented by an extensive series of interviews with musicians, cover artists, and record executives. This in-depth look at a defining era in pop music unearths never-before-heard stories, from Yoko Ono's reflections on John Lennon's last single to Christopher Ciccone's discussion of the iconic artwork he designed for sister Madonna's smash hit "Like a Prayer."
