Contrary to popular belief, "I Think We're Alone Now" was not Tiffany's first single. "Danny" was the first release from her debut album, but wasn't heavily promoted, and didn't sell well. "I Think We're Alone Now," a track on her debut album Tiffany became widely requested on radio stations, and was hence released as a single. It went to #1 on the Billboard pop charts.
There are controversial, disputed reports about whether she released earlier singles "Remembering Love" and "In The Dark" on Unidisc or Karisma Records in 1984 and 1987 respectively. The latest word is that she denies any connection with these, so they're really some other singer of the same name even though they sound something like her, so I've removed them from the discography.
"No Rules" was used as the flip side of both "Danny" and "I Think We're Alone Now". "Ruthless" is the other re-used flip side, appearing on both "Hold An Old Friend's Hand" and "It's The Lover (Not The Love)." "I'll Be The Girl" is the only flip side that appears on an album (Hold An Old Friend's Hand). Otherwise, the flip sides and bonus tracks do not appear on any album. "I Always Thought I'd See You Again" has no B-side; its back side is blank.
Apparently, before the release of "I Saw Him Standing There" with "Mr. Mambo" as the B-side, MCA released a version of the single with the two sides reversed (with a different catalog number). Maybe they decided at the last minute to change the A and B sides around.
The 1987 and 1988 cassette singles (through "All This Time") were distributed in plastic cassette cases just like cassette albums. Later cassette singles were packaged in the standard cardboard cassette-single sleeves. Also, the cassette singles up to and including "Hold An Old Friend's Hand" contained all tracks on the same side, with a repeat of the entire tape on the other side. "It's The Lover (Not The Love)" switches over to one track on each side as with 45 RPM singles. "New Inside" has a sampler of excerpts from the album of the same title on its flip side. Other recent cassette singles are blank on the back.
"Open Your Eyes" was originally announced as the first single from the fall 2000 album, The Color of Silence, but this was changed at the last minute to "I'm Not Sleeping."
