Liquid Gold - Dance Yourself Dizzy (1980)

We all love a bit of early 80s disco don't we? Well, maybe you don't, but this upbeat tune reached #2 in the UK in 1980 and was the English band's biggest hit.

Liquid Gold's first single release was back in October 1978 with Anyway You Do It, although this failed to break the Top 40 by peaking at #41 - now that's annoying!

The band had one more hit during 1980 entitled The Night, The Wine and The Roses which peaked at #32 and was Liquid Gold's last ever chart hit - shame!

This follow-up single to Dance Yourself Dizzy reached #8 in the UK singles chart on June 28th, and spent seven weeks inside the Top 40 overall. However, the tune was not as memorable.

Liquid Gold tried to continue their run of hits by entering their Don't Panic song into the "A Song For Europe" competition in March 1981, to try and gain entry into the Eurovision Song Contest - they failed to receive enough votes from the British public.

However, they made it into the charts again in 1999, but not as a band! This time, Synth and Strings, a 1999 UK chart hit by Yomanda was based around a sample from Dance Yourself Dizzy.
