This Week In Billboard Chart History

Quencie and Debbie Gibson
Today in '89 on March 4, Debbie Gibson scored her 2nd ‪#‎Hot100‬ No. 1 with ballad "Lost in Your Eyes"Debbie Gibson soared to her second Billboard Hot 100 No. 1, as ballad "Lost in Your Eyes" lifted 2-1. "Obviously, dance songs can stand the test of time, but nothing penetrates and spans all age groups, all ethnicities or all genders like a ballad," Gibson told Billboard recently upon the 25th anniversary of the release of parent album "Electric Youth." "One of my favorite things, to this day, is that many people come up to me and tell me that they learned how to play the piano from that song and from that sheet music, which is such an honor to me."

Sidebar: I recently ran into Debbie Gibson at City Wok in Studio City. She was so nice to let me take a selfie with her while we waited on our food. I grew up in a town with no black radio so I know about me some Debbie Gibson.
