'Misty Circles' was the first song to be released by Dead or Alive after being signed to a major label, Epic Records. The band's prior single releases were issued independently.
Upon its release, 'Misty Circles' was not a success, peaking at number 100 on the UK Singles Chart.
In 1984, the song was placed on the B-side of 'You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)'. As both sides earned significant play in American nightclubs, they charted together as a double-sided hit on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart, peaking at number four.
The band performed it before a live audience on Razzmatazz, which features Pete Burns wearing a wardrobe similar to Boy George's, and thus created some temporary friction between the two singers in later years.
The single became the groups first entry on the UK Singles Chart, as well as their lowest peaking single.
The 'Dance Mix' and the b-side 'Selfish Side' were released on the 2007 remastered CD version of the Dead Or Alive album 'Sophisticated Boom Boom' the 'Dub Mix' has not been released on CD.
