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.
