‘Right Round’ was written by Flo Rida, Dr. Luke, Kool Kojak, DJ Frank E, Philip Lawrence, Bruno Mars, Aaron Bay-Schuck, and Dead or Alive, the band whose 1984 song “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)”, is sampled in the chorus.
Adam Sandler performed “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)” to open the film The Wedding Singer. There is also another version featured in the red-band trailer of Hot Tub Time Machine. A cover was featured in Konami’s 2009 video game Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party.
Before The Treblemakers performed ‘Right Round’ in Pitch Perfect, the song was prominently featured in the 2009 movie The Hangover.
