Liza Minnelli – Losing My Mind (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 7th September 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989

“Losing My Mind” is a song written by Stephen Sondheim originally for the 1971 musical Follies for the character of a former showgirl, Sally Durant Plummer. The song became a popular top ten hit for singer and actress Liza Minnelli in 1989 on the UK Singles chart and in Europe. The song has been covered by many artists.

In the UK Singles Chart, the most successful version has been by American singer and actress Liza Minnelli, reaching number six. It was the lead single from her 1989 studio album, Results, produced by Pet Shop Boys and Julian Mendelsohn. The 12″ release peaked at number eleven on the Billboard Maxi Singles Sales chart. It also peaked at number twenty-six on the American dance chart.

The Pet Shop Boys demo version of “Losing My Mind” (which has Neil Tennant singing the vocal) was later remixed and released as a B-side on the Pet Shop Boys’ single, “Jealousy”. This demo version contains a scream that Minnelli opted not to include on her release.
