Audio sample

"Lost in Love" is a 1980 song recorded by the Australian soft rock group Air Supply. The song was written by group member Graham Russell. The original version of the song appeared on the Life Support album in 1979 and was released as a single in Australia, reaching number 13 on the Kent Music Report. The group re-recorded the song for the album Lost In Love in 1980 and this version was released as a single in the US, reaching number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Air Supply's popularity in their native country during the mid to late 1970s had not been matched elsewhere. Russell travelled to England in 1979, and while there, discovered that the group's Australian record label Big Time Records had sold "Lost in Love" to Arista Records in the United States for distribution. Soon thereafter, their song became a hit on the music charts in the US.[1] The song spent four weeks at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in May 1980 and topped the Billboard adult contemporary chart for six weeks that same year.[2]

This song was featured in an episode of Family Guy, "Emission Impossible", and the Australian film Hotel de Love.

Covers[edit]

A country music version of "Lost in Love" was recorded later in 1980 by singers Dickey Lee and Kathy Burdick. This version peaked at number 30 on the Billboard country music chart. That same year, Demis Roussos included it as a duet with Florence Warner on his album Man of the World; and Czech singers Lenka Filipová and Karel Zich made a cover named Mosty (Bridges). 18 years later it was covered by the New Zealand pop group Deep Obsession, becoming a number 1 hit in their homeland.
