Tiffany - "I Saw Him Standing There"

He was just seventeen, way beyond compare...

It was actually the best song she did and surprisingly a decent Beatles remake.

The dead Beatles are rolling over in their graves and the two surviving Beatles want to die, just so than CAN roll over in their graves. A travesty.

Hicky icky.

R2 = Debbie Gibson.

Sorry, "Deborah" Gibson.

Now put your clothes back on, dear.

Rolling Stone magazine summed up this song best by calling it a "conceptual disaster".

I love how, around 0:33, her ghostly head appears to float by itself among the audience. Spooky!

Tiff had the sex appeal and edge. She was the Aguilera to Debbie's Spears.

Debbie Gibson should have transitioned to being a songwriter a la Cathy Dennis. She had a knack for writing some catchy tunes.

Tiffany came to my high school and sang a few songs in the cafeteria. It was some radio station contest. I think it was in 1988.

In my middle school years, it was all about who was the fave, Tiff or Debbie Gibson. Everyone knew that if one of them would later do Playboy, it'd be Tiffany. Imagine my surprise when Deb did it too.

Lulu did it better

Champagne for Lulu!

Debbie "Deborah" Gibson only ever wrote one tuneful, catchy song: 'Only in my Dreams'.

Every other song of hers is unlistenable pap.

Tiffany's most famous songs are covers, so the two can't be compared musically.

I prefer Tiff, anyway.

Not true, R13. Debbie's only great song isn't OIMD. There's "Foolish Beat", "Out of the Blue", "Anything is Possible", "Lost In Your Eyes", "Fallen Angel"...

I preferred Tiffany, as well.

Debbie/Deborah/Debbie again had that awful speech impediment when she spoke.

Tiff had the better Playboy spread.

When Grandmadonna's SEX book came out, Deb took to the press to crucify it. Then she did Playboy, herself.

Tiffany also had the longer, more luxurious hair of the two

Deb didn't show her tuppance

r14 has got to be joking.

I've listened to all those songs on spotify, and they are uniformly awful.

No hooks, no interesting melodies, just boring and bland and unlistenable.

And I say this as someone who loves 95 % of all commercial pop music from the 1980s.

DG only had one good song in her, her very first one, and then she was done. No wonder her career came to a halt so suddenly.

Well, R20, to each his own (you still have no taste, though).

All this time by Tiffany -for the win

really r1? All I hear is a lot of yelling.

Anyone who actually likes it has hopeless bad taste.

Tiffany was an earache. Plus she campaigned for HW Bush, even singing at the RNC convention in '88. If Tiffany is your friend you are no friend of mine.

R13/20=Meryl loon.

I watched that clip and her dancing is horrible.

I love the Janet/Pleasure Principle hand-to-face thing she does at 3:27 in the video

Wow, I didn't know that. I definitely don't like her now (not that I ever did).

by Anonymousreply 2912/30/2012

Debbie has her beat. She still holds the record of the youngest person to write and produce a #1 song on the Billboard ("Foolish Beat"). It still holds up a quarter of a century later.

R30, that's what I was trying to explain to R20.

Did she have her boobs done? I remember seeing her on "Hit Me Baby One More Time" a few years ago, and for her whole performance I was convinced one of those breasts was going to come a-tumblin' out.

by Anonymousreply 3212/30/2012

Yeah, Tiff had her boobs done. She talked about it on Howard Stern years ago.

Mojo Nixon had the final word on the Tiff/Debb rivalry. Great video that was banned by MTV at the time (early 1989). Fun cameo by Winona Ryder.

In that Debbie video she looks like the actress who playsed Starr Manning on One Life to Live and is now on GH.
