"Out of the Blue" is the third single by American singer-songwriter-actress Deborah Gibson. Written by Gibson herself, co-produced and co-arranged with Fred Zarr, with Douglas Breitbart as executive producer, the single is identical to Track 1 of Gibson's debut album. Released as a single in January 1988, "Out of the Blue" gave Gibson her highest chart placing at the time by reaching number three in the U.S. In the UK, it did slightly less well than her two previous singles, stalling at number nineteen.

As a maxi single, "Out of the Blue," like "Shake Your Love" before it, took number one on the Billboard Hot Maxi Singles chart.

In 2010, Gibson re-recorded the song as an extra track for the Deluxe Edition release of the Japan-exclusive album Ms. Vocalist.
