Top 10 Alert!

Debut:  71
Peak:  2
Weeks:  27
Genre:  Pop, Adult Contemporary

Pop Bits:  The second single from their US breakthrough album "Lost in Love" would be the biggest hit from the album. While their first single (the album's #3 title track) was a dreamy confection, "All Out of Love" began a streak of massive hit ballads that would became their signature sound.

ReduxReview:  Look, you are either a fan of Air Supply or you are not. You either revel in delight over their sweet sounds or you get sick from the saccharine. I happen to be a fan. During their peak years there was hardly anyone who could top them when it came to big-ass AC ballads. This is one of their best.

ReduxRating:  8/10

Trivia:  In 2010, Air Supply's Graham Russell received a BMI Million-Air award for co-writing this song. The award signified that the song has been performed over three-million times. This is the first Air Supply song to reach this goal.
