    Only in my dreams was a big hit in the UK – reached the UK top 10 (No.7 or something)

    Great pop song and reminds me of my youth!

    I really love Debbie Gibson and this song brings back many memories of my (electric) youth!! And as Fred said up above, she really had great people around her to give her music great beats and production. Thank you Paul for such a sweet classic.

    Many thanks Paul!

    This is also one of the first mixes made by Louie Vega without Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez.

    If you can, don’t forget about “Electric youth” remixed by Shep Pettibone.

  7. Ally Says:

    Thank you. There is a alternative 5:55 Louie Vega “Extended Club Mix” on her 1995 Greatest Hits album. Was this other version previously unreleased at the time?

    [Reply]

    DjPaulT Reply:

    I think so Ally or it may have been a newly remixed 1995 version. There is not much info about it.

  8. MusicMan3 Says:

    Great post, Paul.

    It is interesting that there are two “Extended Club Mix” versions of this great song – and I *think* both were by “Little” Louie Vega. As Ally stated above, the other “Extended Club Mix” version that has a 5:55 running time appears on the Gibster’s 1995 Greatest Hits collection.

    This 6:34 version though appears on the 12″ singles and also on the 1988 Super-Mix Club collection (odd name, right?) where it is simply listed as “Club Mix.” Not sure why they didn’t come up with different names for the mixes, but I guess that was the 80s, right?

    Both mixes are great as were Debbie’s singles. Appreciate you posting this mix!

    You’re welcome MusicMan3. I think the version that appeared on Greatest Hits was an unreleased mix

    Debbie Gibson was huge in the US, more than in Europe I recall.
    Nice to see some of her work added to your extensive catalogue Paul.
    Have a great weekend.

    Wow, just when I thought you were going deeper underground, you are taking us to the mall. But then again, pleasantly surprised to see Louie Vega’s name on it 🙂 Always another side to things, it seems..

    We will dive back into the underground Dirk I promise 🙂

    Great track. I have the ‘prime cuts mix’ on CD. It actually reached number 11 in the UK on re-release.

  16. Modernaire Says:

    What the HELL is this? All of Gibson’s singles should be destroyed, never to be heard from again. Please, let’s avoid the acts that actually were responsible for the onslaught of horrendous mall pop that we still are suffering from. Please.

    I recommend you delete any and all Gibson posts and we’ll just forget about it. How dare you waste valuable needle friction, let alone TIME on this… Gibson thing. What’s next? The complete Tiffiny and New Kids On The Block 12 in in 24-96?

    I look forward to an immediate replacement to this, this… BTG aberration post.

    DjPaulT Reply:

    It’s gonna stay but as you can see from my other posts, I’m not stuck in this genre. However I do have plenty of Tiffany and NKOTB to share. I wasn’t planning on sharing them anytime soon, but now that you mention it… Better luck to you next week 🙂

    Dirk Reply:

    I laughed so hard about your comment. I ha uhm dislike a lot of music , too and some for the same reasons it appears. But okay okay for nostalic reasons of fellow earthmembers, well they should be able to connect with repressed parts of their pasts as well. Just don’t listen to it yourself 🙂

    But I fully agree when it comes to banning cheap mall music in the present. Let the networking yell-and-destroy-puppets have their number ones in each others closets, instead of on mainstream radio and other public outlets. Avoid one-eyers, i would say!

    Now, back to the order of the day, turn on a switch and listen to music you love.

    Locutus Reply:

    Debbie’s a guilty pleasure for me, so I don’t mind if more are posted in succession but I’ll pass on the Tiffany though. There is room for just about anyone’s taste. I’d love some rips from the Iron Maiden 12″ singles that have plenty of cool B sides on them, but I don’t really expect that here & that’s fine.

    There’s plenty of cool stuff to add to my collection, compare to my own pressings, or simply ignore. I’ll even admit to liking some stuff that really is total crap, but it’s enjoyable for a laugh if nothing else. Just be glad that there are no Telly Savalas 12″ singles around (at least I’ve never seen any).

    And.. thanxalod, Some broken hearts never Mend just popped up in my brain and settled.
    I might download this debbie-thing just to break the spell.. 🙂
    Uhm.. no, I am gonna listen to a Grace-Jones-rip of Paul’s. Again 🙂

  17. Paul Says:

    Great post (as always) but I’m biased because I’m a big fan of Deb. Love that these have been lovingly restored by yourself 🙂 Rob is right, Shake Your Love made 7 in the UK, OIMD make 11 on it’s re-release.

    I love this track – my favourite single from the album, although I do wish ‘Red Hot’ had been released as a single.
