Nathan Rapport gives good pin.

I remember this hit from the summer of 1985 dancing at Faces in East Saint Louis and The Upside in Saint Louis.

From Wikipedia:

You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" is a song by British band Dead or Alive on their 1985 album Youthquake. The song was the first UK number-one hit by the Stock Aitken Waterman production trio. Released in November 1984, the record reached number one in March 1985, taking 17 weeks to get there. On the US Billboard Hot 100, it peaked at no. 11 on 17 August of that year.

Nathan Rapport cheekily called his enamel pin "You Spin Me Round".

While it certainly features a creative position, it wasn't until a customer called it out that I was aware this was called the "rusty trombone".  For those not in the know the rusty trombone is "to get rimmed whilst receiving a hearty reach round, thus resembling a trombone player in full chorus."
