Song Lyric Sunday: Lost

As the great musical poet Kiki Dee once said, “I’ve got the music in me.” Seriously, music is part of my daily life, so I participate in Song Lyric Sunday. This week’s theme is lost.

I didn’t get lost in thought (see what I did there) coming up with this week’s song. Even if I tried to think of what cool song I’d like to feature, this teen singer from the 1980s screeched, “YOU WILL USE MY SONG!” And so I will.

This 80s song has it all: weird hairsprayed-in-place ‘dos, tons of synthesizer, and many a questionable wardrobe choice (including, but not limited to, Hammer pants).

Whilst watching (and listening) to this — a NUMBER 1 SONG! *faints* — you can play my favorite game: Count the Number of Hats! My favorite hat is the first black one that she wears way too far back on her noggin. Another fun game to play whilst watching: What the F*ck Is She Doing with Her Hands? 

Hop in the wayback machine — I hope we’ll all fit what with the shoulder pads and the Aquanet-ted hair — to 1989. Enjoy the song stylings of teen sensation Debbie — then Deborah — then back to Debbie Gibson and Lost In Your Eyes from her second CD, Electric Youth. I actually was (and am) a fan (more of her first album, but I digress).

Lost In Your Eyes

  1. Great choice! And I am trying not to laugh at that curly ‘do with the half ponytail… And true…guess she wore is to far back (black hat) so it could frame her from behind…
    Thankfully I did not go to any extremes in the 80’s… I was more of the “freak” with the jeans and construction boots. No Spray Net to be found!

    1. That half pony do deserves the chuckles. I believe that’s also when she’s wearing the hammer pants, so… a good look all around! 🙂

      I gave up on the hairspray and wide shoulders after freshman year in high school. As such, my yearbook photo looks like me now, just younger, instead of like an extra from a Bon Jovi video like my fellow classmates. bwahahaha


      1. Right!!
        Haha! I’m laughing again. I look like a hippy in my school pic but a very straight girl in my grad pic… then, at he end of the year, I was sporting the Dorothy Hamill bob. 😁

  2. Tara,

    I do not believe I’ve ever seen this video. I do remember the song quite well, as it happened upon me whenever I turned on the radio. It was a battle between Debbie G and Tiffany for a while there, if I remember right . . .

    Yanno . . I actually dig this song!

      1. Mall Queens was a thing . . when malls were a thing. Buahahaha, you’re right on.

        Oh, and thank you very much for putting that Debbie Gibson song in me noggin. I was humming “Lost in your Eyes” until this afternoon when Linds put “Uptown Girl” in ‘me noggin, LOL.

            1. EXCEPT for the last Super Bowl performance, which SUCKED. BUT! How can one beat Ms. Perry and her sharks? And, of course, the all-time winner: the purple-y passion of Prince.

  3. Such a sweet, sweet song! I’m not sure I remember it, but my girls were always listening to her songs back then. In fact, my oldest is about her age, and back then everyone said she looked just like Debbie Gibson, with the straight hair & bangs. I have photos where you can hardly tell them apart, and she even had a hat like that, that she wore. Then there was the Electric Youth perfume! Of course they had to get some, and it actually did smell really good. They still remember it fondly. 🙂

  4. The Debbie G / Tiffany battle was epic and on my school bus every morning! LOL we had the best bus driver in the world, who let us bring out portable boom-boxes on the bus and it was always Debbie vs. Tiffany – until the boys got a hold of it, then it was “Welcome to the Jungle” by GNR. 😀
