The Flat Earth is the second album by Thomas Dolby. It was released in February 1984, peaking at on the UK Albums Chart. The first single from the album was "Hyperactive!", which peaked at in the UK Singles Chart, making it Dolby's highest-charting single in his home country. The album charted at in America.

Hyperactive!" is a single by British musician Thomas Dolby, taken from his second album The Flat Earth, released in 1984. Additional vocals were provided by Louise Ulfstedt. According to Thomas Dolby, he initially composed the song for Michael Jackson, whom he met in 1982. He decided to record it by himself since he never got any feedback from Jackson after sending him a demo tape.

This staying power belongs to a fantastic ensemble of supporting players as much as to Thomas Dolby's songwriting and crisp production. Dissidents" steps in cautiously and conjures images of blacklisted authors and ugly snow, gray from oppression. Here and elsewhere, Matthew Seligman's bass is a welcome addition - throughout the album his work is lavish, growling, popping through octaves, funk-a-fied and twinkling with harmonics. The title track, "The Flat Earth," is a wondrous R&B daydream of piano and Motown stabs of rhythm guitar.

The Flat Earth" lyrics. The Earth can be any shape you want it Any shape at all Dark and cold or bright and warm Long or thin or small But it's home and all I ever had And maybe why for me the Earth is flat. Friends have often asked me why I'm sensitive about my height I would look around and say Hmm, I thought I was immune All my life I have waited To be given any word It was screaming to be heard. album: "The Flat Earth" (1984).
