Tiffany – I Think We’re Alone Now

First Hit #1: November 7, 1987

I think we can safely say that 1987 was a year of nostalgia. I Think We’re Alone Now is a song from Tommy James and the Shondells, and Tiffany doesn’t really do much to change things around. She’s got a different voice, and there are more synthesizers – in that there are synthesizers – but it’s more an attempt to ape the original than it is an attempt to put a new spin on the material. Tiffany’s music was never anything that special, and she was more notable for her tour of various malls than anything interesting she recorded. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with Tiffany, and she does have a very likable screen presence, but she’s also the kind of artist that has a brush with fame before mostly disappearing, because her music is okay and she can get people excited in person, but she’s really not recording anything with staying power.

    There has always been, and will always be, a market for teen idols. They work cheaply, have novelty and beauty on their side in the short term, and don’t put on airs. Give them an irrelevant but fun cover song and plaster them on some magazine covers and lunch boxes and, cha-ching! Half the fun is trying to prognosticate whether you’re looking at the next Justin Timerlake, or the next Dana Plato.
