1 min read
In 1988, Tiffany's cover of "I Think We're Alone Now" topped the charts in the UK and US, marking her only number one hit. The song, originally by Tommy James and the Shondells, was reworked into a dance track for Tiffany's debut album, released in 1987. Her version dominated the Billboard Hot 100 and UK Singles Chart.

Today’s song is by Tiffany. It’s a cover of I Think We’re Alone Now. It was her only number one hit in the UK, US, Canada and New Zealand. On this day in 1988 it peaked at number 1 in the UK and US.

“I Think We’re Alone Now” is a song written and composed by Ritchie Cordell that was first recorded by Tommy James and the Shondells. It was a major hit for the group, reaching number 4 on the US Hot 100 in April 1967. It finished at No. 12 on Billboard magazine’s year-end singles chart for 1967.

Tiffany covered the song when she was 15 for her debut album, Tiffany, which was released on August 16, 1987. The producers remade the song as a dance track, and when Tiffany played it to friends, they started to dance. Tiffany returned the next day to record the song in around four takes.

“I Think We’re Alone Now” was Tiffany’s biggest hit. Her version of the song spent two weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and three weeks at number one on the UK Singles Chart. It charted first on August 28, 1987 and August 29, 1987
