Think with Your Heart is the fifth album by American singer-songwriter Debbie Gibson. The album was somewhat unpopular in the US, only selling 25,000 copies, but was a minor success in Japan, peaking at #46 on the Japanese album charts, as well as some success in South Africa. The album was produced by Gibson herself, and largely recorded with a live orchestra and shows the maturity of Gibson as a musician.[3]
