1982 Eddie Money – I Think I’m In Love
After moving to California and adopting the stage name Eddie Money in 1968, Eddie began playing in clubs. He signed with Columbia Records and released his first album in 1977. By the middle of 1978, he had released three singles that reached the top twenty-five on the Hot 100.
After that, he struggled to return to the charts. He finally got there again in 1982.
Guitarist Randy Oda joined the band Ruby in the early 1970s. The band included Tom Fogerty, the former rhythm guitarist from Creedence Clearwater Revival. He and Tom co-wrote many of the songs on the band’s albums.
In 1982, Eddie and Randy co-wrote the song I Think I’m In Love. Eddie shot a video that interspersed clips of his band performing the song with black and white scenes that were echoes of a Gothic Vampire film.
The single peaked at #16 on the Hot 100 and also reached the top position on the US Mainstream Rock chart.
After Eddie released the song on an album, Arnold Schwarzenegger used the song in his Total Body Workout video.
The successful single helped reignite Eddie’s career, and he continued charting hits through 1992.
Complications from cancer led to Eddie’s death in 2019.
