"Like a Yo-Yo" is a song by Italian singer Sabrina. This song was written and produced by Giorgio Moroder. It was released in February 1989 as the album's third and final single. The song's B-sides "Doctors Orders" and "Sex" appeared on Sabrina's second studio album.

Song information[edit]

Released as a single in 1989, "Like A Yo-Yo" was Sabrina's first collaboration with disco-legend Giorgio Moroder, who had written this cheerful song. For the single-release, the song (originally from the 'Super Sabrina'-album) was remixed by the English team of Stock/Aitken/Waterman for 7" and 12" use. SAW had been responsible for Sabrina's big success with "All Of Me". Strangely, Videogram only used the 12"-remix, while Carrere in France used both, but edited the 7"-version. Also, different picture-sleeves were prepared for the 7" and 12"-releases in Italy. To confuse things a bit, France (and the UK in 1989) used the Italian 12"-design on all formats.
