Ooh, I had a big crush on this girl back in the 80s! The original version of this song was a hit in 1967 for Tommy James
& The Shondells. This 80s cover by teen pop sensation Tiffany made
#1 for three weeks in the UK from 30th January 1988. It was also #1 in
the U.S, Ireland, Canada, South Africa and New Zealand.
Tiffany's self-titled debut album was also a big hit, reaching #1 in the
U.S. and #2 in the UK. It also reached 4x Platinum status.
The American singer had three more Top 40 hit singles in the UK; Could've Been (#4 UK, #1 U.S.), I Saw Him Standing There (#4 UK, #1 U.S.) and Radio Romance (#13 UK, #35 U.S.).
A follow-up album released in November 1988, Hold An Old Friend's Hand, reached #56 in the album charts. However, none of the six albums released after this charted in either the UK or U.S.
During 2006, Girls Aloud also
had a #4 hit with their cover of I Think We're Alone Now in the UK.
