Lost in Music is a 1979[3] single by Sister Sledge from the album We Are Family. It was written and produced by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards,[4] and made the UK top twenty in three trips; the original made #17 in 1979[3] (while charting at #35 on what was then called the Hot Soul Singles[5] chart), the "Special 1984 Nile Rodgers Remix"[4] made #4 in 1984[3] and the Sure Is Pure remix[6] made #14 in 1993.[3]

In 2006, the Special 1984 Nile Rodgers Remix was used in the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories soundtrack. Two years later, the song featured very heavily in the karaoke style game show Who Dares, Sings!, being performed by the presenters at the start of each show.

The song was covered by British post-punk band The Fall on their 1993 album The Infotainment Scan.[7]
