"I Think I'm in Love" by Eddie Money

Song#:  1090
Date:  07/03/1982
Debut:  66
Peak:  16
Weeks:  17
Genre:  Rock

Pop Bits:  After two platinum albums, Money's third LP "Playing for Keeps" served as a bump in the road for him and couldn't even muster gold status. He regrouped and returned with "No Control" and this first single got him back in the Top 20 for the first time since is debut single "Baby Hold On" in 1978 (#11). It helped to get his album in the Top 20 and return him to platinum status.

ReduxReview:  I'm not sure why I didn't hook into this tune more back in the day. It's a terrific song with a really good sing-along rock chorus. He would have bigger hits, but I think this is one of his best tracks.

ReduxRating:  8/10

Trivia:  The video for this song was quite popular on MTV. It had a storyline that includes Money portraying a vampire in an old castle where unexpected visitors arrive. At a time when music videos were still being made on the cheap, the production value on this one was pretty good and still holds up. But it's a far cry from the high-dollar videos that would take over MTV later in the 80s and 90s.
