“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 traveled 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. 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.
This song was featured in an episode of Family Guy, “Emission Impossible”, the 1981 American film Private Lessons, and the Australian film “Hotel de Love”.
There are two music videos for “Lost in Love”. One, an official video, has Air Supply singing on a blue background, while their entire band of additional personnel play their music for them. The other one has Air Supply singing live at a concert.
