Foolish beat - Debbie Gibson

At the age of 17, Debbie Gibson was the youngest female to write, produce, and perform a US Billboard Hot 100 number 1 hit single with her song 'Foolish beat'. In the UK, the single reached a peak position of number nine on the UK Singles Chart.

The song was included on Gibson's debut album 'Out of the blue', released in 1987 as well.

We could be together - Debbie Gibson

Debbie Gibson was born on August 31, 1970. Aged just sixteen, she debuted with the single 'Only in my dreams' and the album 'Out of the blue'. In America, she was presented as the 'good girl' as opposed to 'bad girl' Tiffany, who was of the same age.

I was not attracted to Debbie Gibson's bubblegum pop music at all. I didn't buy any of her singles. But in 1989, I heard 'We could be together' and thought it was a nice track. I was a bit surprised when it wasn't released in the Netherlands, but I bought a copy of the single that October, since I was in London anyway. Twenty years later it sounds like a bland song after all...

My collection: 7" single no. 998
Found: Tower Records, London, October 16, 1989
Cost: 2 pounds
Tracks: 'We could be together' / 'Over the wall (dub version)'
