“Foolish Beat” is the fourth single, and the first ballad release, from American singer-songwriter-actress Debbie Gibson. Originally recorded in the winter of 1987 for the Dream Tour, months prior to its inclusion on her album Out of the Blue, this made Gibson the youngest person to write, produce and sing a number-one single entirely on her own when “Foolish Beat” hit the top of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the summer of 1988.
In the United Kingdom, the single reached a peak position of number nine on the UK Singles Chart. The single was released in Japan as the B-side to “Out of the Blue” on Atlantic Records Japan.
In 2010, Gibson re-recorded the song as an extra track for the Deluxe Edition release of the Japan-exclusive album Ms. Vocalist.
