Songoftheday 1/27/16 - Hey baby you've been on my mind tonight, I'm so lonely I just had to sit down and write...


"Lost In You" - Rod Stewart
from the album Out Of Order (1988)
Billboard Hot 100 peak: #12 (one week)
Weeks in the Top-40: 9

Today's song of the day comes from Rod Stewart, who had carried through the 80s quite well, last landing another top-ten pop single with "Love Touch" from the movie Legal Eagles. Two years later, Rod released his 15th album Out Of Order, which turned out to be his strongest album of the decade. Produced by Stewart with Bernard Edwards of Chic and Andy Taylor of Duran Duran, and the latter helped write the first single with Rod, "Lost In You". With a hint of mandolin and faux pipes-like sounding guitars, the song rolls along like the old car in the video...


"Lost In You" became Rod's ninth top-40 hit of the 80's in July of 1988. The single also climbed to #3 on Billboard's Album Rock Tracks chart, his highest rank up to that point. Internationally, the song went to #14 in Ireland, and was a more moderate top-40 success in Australia (#22), Germany (#25), the Netherlands (#34), and his native Britain (#21).

There was a second video made for the song, but it weirdly put Rod on the docks like in Journey's "Separate Ways"...


...and here's Rod on tour in 1989 in South America...


....and another show from 1998...
