5.0 out of 5 stars Innocent Teenage Pop December 23, 2002
By Aaron
Format:Audio CD
Debbie Gibson was the Britney Spears of the 80's. The big difference was, Debbie Gibson didn't use sex like Britney and Christina Aguilera have done in recent years. Debbie gained appeal through her songwriting and catchy pop songs. This was her 1987 debut and was a smash going muliplatinum and launching four top 5 singles for Debbie. Pretty much every kid had this album or at least one of the singles. "Only In My Dreams" and "Out of the Blue" are the best tracks. They're just great pop tunes that you can't help but sing along with. Debbie's biggest hit from this album was "Foolish Beat" which set records and became her first #1 single *she would have another one in 1989 with "Lost In Your Eyes."* "Shake Your Love" was the other huge hit with its bouncy beat and poppy lyrics. "Red Hot" and "Stay Together" are equally good songs and are right up there with the singles.
After "Out of the Blue," Debbie would continue to be successful through-out the late 80's and into the early 90's with another multiplatinum release entitled "Electric Youth" in 1989 and the gold release "Anything Is Possible" in 1990. The cool thing about her was that she didn't compromise herself or her image in order to sell records. She made great pop and remained true to herself.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good debut from one of a trio of 1987 female singers January 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There is one thing that the cable channel VH1 does very effectively. It allows one to relive moments from your childhood through its "I Love the [insert decade here]" series of shows. Born in the early 1970s, but with music tastes more in tune with the 1980s (when I really started to notice girls) I was sitting down to watch the episode covering 1987 when a familiar music video played across my television screen.
Rewind almost 20 years and I was a 15-year old high school student in the United Kingdom. While all my friends were into heavy metal and speed metal bands I had a secret - I enjoyed and listened to pop songs and released that year were a trio of female singers, two of which would have a major impact on my life. First, was the incredibly beautiful French singer and actress Vanessa Paradis whose debut single "Joe Le Taxi" rocketed up the charts and to this day I collect any DVD or music that is released by her (which isn't much since she became the life partner to Johnny Depp). Second came Debbie Gibson (who now prefers to be known as Deborah). I immediately developed a teenage crush on the blonde singer/songwriter and joined DGIF (Debbie Gibson International Fanclub) before they had even settled on a name. To this day the only fan clubs I have ever joined was DGIF and Vanessa Paradis'.
Debbie's first CD single "Only In My Dreams" was actually released in December 1986. But she did not appear on the British music scene until mid-1987 with the song "Shake Your Love," and it was this song that introduced me to the talented young performer (and the video of which made me sit up and take notice on VH1 recently).

5.0 out of 5 stars Debut Album @ it's Best! July 31, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Debbie Gibson debuted with this successful pop album which aims mainly on dance-pop oriented genre and comes up with radio-friendly tunes like the title track, and big top 40 hits such as Only In My Dreams, Shake Your Love, all have become pop classics even as we speak. But the real highlight of this album is the ballad, Foolish Beat, which top the charts and professes Debbie, at her creative singing-song- writing best. The other remaining tracks are delightful to listen also like Red Hot, Wake Up To Love and Fallen Angel. It's an album that anyone will enjoy, it's a classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars This album is one of my favorites of my collection. April 20, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is Debbie Gibson at her best. She wrote music that is even today fun to listen to. And I can say that I have never gotten bored of listenning to this album. The only thing that bothers me about this album now, is that either the label or Debbbie Gibson herself has had the song, "Between The Lines", removed from the reissued version. Those of you who have not heard it do not know what is missing, but I tell you it makes the album much better.

4.0 out of 5 stars 1986 Forever : How Debbie Gibson Changed Music February 20, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The Guinness Book of World Records says that Debbie Gibson still holds a world record for being the Youngest Person to write, produce and sing a No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 Single. Wow. I actually never knew that, despite owning this album in various formats for decades.

Just why is this album so special in this day and age? Well, if you can move past the 'mall-girl' and 'teen-pop' labels that Tiffany, Debbie Gibson and to some extent Paula Abdul were slapped with back in the 1980s, you'll find that its a frothy, fun-filled genre that doesn't have to rely upon clothes-bearing tactics to sell. The tunes are wonderful, still great after all these years, and Debbie Gibson, hate her if you must, is unique even today because her melodies have lasted a lifetime. She really is very, very talented.

"Foolish Beat" is obviously the best known thing here, but my personal favorite is "Out of the Blue" and the title track "Only in My Dreams". This song is so catchy. The singable "Shake Your Love" (which had a way funny video back in 1987) is another standout. You have to notice the songwriting here though. Despite her young age, Gibsons' lyrics are poignant and REAL, and she doesn't feel the need to make the ends of sentences unnecessarily rhyme. When they do, it sounds perfectly within context.

Its a real pity that many people laugh at this genre of music, but the truth is - this is some great music. When I can't think of what to listen to, this album, as well as Gibsons' far superior sophomore CD "Electric Youth", are all I need to have a good time.

Check this out, and also buy a copy of "Electric Youth". Two later albums - "Anything is Possible" from 1990, and "Body Mind Soul" from 1993 are both officially out of print, but contain some stunning examples of songwriting. They are well worth tracking down.
