Throwback: Eric Carmen – “Make Me Lose Control”

I’m feeling nostalgic for a song about nostalgia. How meta.

This classic 80s pop tune from Eric Carmen was one of my favorites as it was always played on FM100. But, interestingly enough, it was never on an album. Yeah, it was featured in Dirty Dancing (along with another Carmen hit, “Hungry Eyes”) but “Make Me Lose Control” was not on the soundtrack album nor was it ever on one of Carmen’s studio releases. It just existed in the ether …

The song was still a massive hit, reaching the top 3 of the Billboard Hot 100. Ah, the good ol’ days. Once again, I must say, I grew up during an amazing time. Oh yeah, while I love both songs, “Make Me Lose Control” > “Hungry Eyes” … FACT.
