    This was a time when one could still listen to the lyrics and sing along. This was a time when music had melody and rhythm. This is a silly little song by Tiffany, but caught the essence of being young and in love.
    Excellence is not a skill; its an attitude...

    I remember Tiffany fondly!

    On 7 November 1987 sixteen year-old Tiffany was the youngest female to smash USA singles charts by doing a cover version of Tommy James & The Shondells classic hit “ I think we alone now.”[1]

    Children behave, that's what they say when we're together
    And watch how you play
    They don't understand
    And so we're
    Running just as fast as we can, holding on to one another hands
    Trying to get away into the night and then you put your arms around me
    And we tumble to the ground and then you say
    I think we're alone now,
    There doesn't seem to be anyone around
    I think we're alone now,
    The beating of our hearts is the only sound
    Look at the way we gotta hide what we're doin'
    'Cause what would they say
    If they ever knew
    And so we're
    Running just as fast as we can, holding on to one another hands
    Trying to get away into the night and then you put your arms around me
    And we tumble to the ground and then you say
    I think we're alone now,
    There doesn't seem to be…

    Tantalizing lyrics from another ‘silly little love song.’
    He wasn't looking for a pretty face
    She wasn't searching for the latest style
    He didn't want someone who walked straight off the TV
    She needed someone with an interior smile
    She wasn't looking for a cuddle in the back seat
    He wasn't looking for a five minute thrill
    She wasn't thinking of tomorrow or of next week
    This vacancy he meant to permanently fill
    I need an everlasting love
    I need a friend and a lover divine
    An everlasting precious love
    Wait for it, wait for it, give it some time
    Back in the world of disposable emotion
    In the climate of temporary dreams
    He wasn't looking for a notch on his bedpost
    A love to push, pull and burst at the seams
    I need an everlasting love
    I need a friend and a lover divine
    An everlasting precious love
    Wait for it, wait for…
