Did Comic Bakery (C64 version) come out before or after the lead single from the album Youthquake by Dead or Alive?

"Comic Bakery is a computer game for the MSX, made by Konami in 1984 and later ported to Commodore 64 by Imagine."

"'You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)' is a song originally released by Dead or Alive on their 1985 album Youthquake."

However, the SID file I have is dated 1986, so the C=64 version did come out after that song.

Also, from Galway himself,

"The only thing I have to say about it is that the title tune started off as a cover of 'Hot Water' by Level 42 (oh yeah add them to my favourite music list). It went badly awry by the end of the 1st 10 seconds though and I decided to change it to something else!"

I asked because when "You Spin Me Round" became popular on YTMND (sample of fad), I remembered having heard it before but couldn't place it.

Hey Tepples, that was pretty cool. I've been listening to it for the past couple of days. Is there anyway I could snag the NED for that off of you?
