Today in 1987 Tiffany Became the Youngest Artist to Grab the No. 1 Spot on the US Charts

16-year-old pop singer Tiffany made music history in 1987 when she became the youngest artist to have a U.S. number one single since Michael Jackson’s “Ben.” Twenty years prior, “I Think We’re Alone Now” was written by Ritchie Cordell and released by James and the Shondells in 1967. The song peaked at number four that year, and number one in 1987.

Tiffany was reluctant to record the song, feeling like it wasn’t modern enough for her audience. After a push from management, the song made it onto her debut self-titled album, and would prove to be Tiffany’s biggest hit. The teen anthem’s video was filmed in a Utah shopping mall, paying tribute to how she promoted her career early on.
