This Day In Music, March 4th

On this day in 1989: Debbie Gibson started a three week run at #1 on the U.S. singles chart with “Lost In Your Eyes.”

“Lost in Your Eyes” was the sixth single from American singer-songwriter, Debbie Gibson, and the first from her second album, ‘Electric Youth’. The song was written by Gibson in late 1987 and published by Creative Bloc Music, Ltd. and Deborah Ann’s Music in early 1988, with the rights eventually administered by the Music Sales Corporation.

Released in December 1988, the ballad climbed to #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and remained there for three weeks, becoming her most successful single. In Canada it also reached #1 for three weeks, and outside North America, “Lost in Your Eyes” experienced moderate chart success, reaching #7 in Australia and the top 40 in Belgium, Ireland, Spain and the United Kingdom.
