About Make Me Lose Control

"Make Me Lose Control" is a 1988 Billboard Hot 100 #3 hit single (see 1988 in music) written and performed by the singer-songwriter Eric Carmen. It was co-written by Dean Pitchford. It is one of two major hits written by the duo, the other being the 1984 song "Almost Paradise" by Mike Reno and Ann Wilson. Released a few months after the success of "Hungry Eyes", Carmen's song from the film Dirty Dancing, which peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, "Make Me Lose Control" also reached the Top 5 on the Hot 100, topping out at #3. On the Sales chart the song spent a week at #1, while on the Airplay chart it reached #4. It spent 13 weeks in the Top 40. In addition, "Make Me Lose Control" spent three weeks at #1 on the adult contemporary chart, the singer's second song to do so (following "Never Gonna Fall in Love Again" from 1976). Carmen stated in the liner notes to a compilation album that "Make Me Lose Control" was an "odd record because it was all by itself. The song wasn't part of an album, but it was an interesting experience to jump back into the studio with Jimmy Ienner after ten years". The B side was Carmen's original 1975 recording of his song which became a major hit in 1977 for Shaun Cassidy, "That's Rock 'n' Roll".

I run a comb through my hair and step out in the street
And the city's the color of flame in the midsummer heat, oh yeah
Jennifer's got her daddy's car, she's playing "Uptown" on the stereo
We go cruisin' so close, the way they did long ago

My darlin'

Turn the radio up for that sweet sound
Hold me close, never let me go
Keep this feelin' alive
Make me lose control
Baby, baby
When I look in your eyes, I go crazy
Fever's high with the lights down low
Take me over the edge
Make me lose control

We put the top down and park with the moon in the sky
And the wind is so hot in our hair, like a fire in July, oh yeah
Jennifer's singin', "Stand by Me"
And she knows every single word by heart
Was love always this good, or could this be just the start?

Oh darlin'

Turn the radio up for that sweet sound
Hold me close, never let me go
Keep this feelin' alive
Make me lose control
Baby, baby
When I look in your eyes, I go crazy
Fever's high with the lights down low
Take me over the edge
Make me lose control

"Be My Baby" comes on and we're movin' in time
And the heat from your touch
Makes me feel like I'm losing my mind, oh yeah
(And then they played) Back in my arms again 
(We close our eyes) We start rememberin' when
(We start to kiss) And all the feelings return
And we just pray that this night never ends

Oh, my darlin'
Turn the radio up for that sweet sound
Hold me close, never let me go
Keep this feelin' alive make me lose control
Baby
When I look in your eyes, I go crazy
Fever's high with the lights down low
Take me over the edge
Make me lose control

Baby, baby

Turn the radio up for that sweet sound
Hold me close, never let me go
(Keep) Keep this feelin' alive make me lose control

When I look in your eyes, I go crazy
Fever's high with the lights down low
(So take) Take me over the edge make me lose control

Baby, baby 

Turn the radio up for that sweet sound
Hold me close, never let me go
Keep this feelin' alive
Make me lose control
