In 1986 Stacey Q released one of the most infectious and recognizable hits of the 80s, Two of Hearts. The song is bright, bouncy and soooooo much fun. In short, it's the tits. Two of Hearts rose to #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was also a success in Australia where it reached #7 on the ARIA chart, #2 in Canada and #1 on the US Hot Dance Music/Maxi Singles Chart. This song was so popular that Stacey even landed a role on The Facts of Life playing Cinnamon, a singer Tootie was competing with to get a part in a Broadway show. (Because obviously if you wanted to be on Broadway you would sing a breathy pop song...duh!)  Watch that totally believable situation HERE. Anyway, I am STILL to this very day obsessed with this song and when it comes on my iPhone I always have to play it again at least once, and by once I mean thrice!! While Stacey Q had a couple of other hits (We Connect [#35] and Don't Make a Fool of Yourself [#66]) she never quite connected to the broad audience she reached with Two of Hearts. Doesn't matter. People still love this song today. I personally loved Stacey Q's album Better Than Heaven and listened to it until it fell apart. The girl's got spunk! In 2010 Stacey Q embraced her Facts of Life past and released a pretty good album of dance music called Color Me Cinnamon (reviewed HERE). See what she did there? Anyway, here are some of my favorite Stacey Q songs for you to set your eyeholes on for a few minutes. They're super catchy and you'll love them. The last video is a pretty awesome live performance of their song Insecurity live (for real) from the Joan Rivers Show. Howie Mandel was guest-hosing. HAHAHAHA!! 80s. Watch and wiggle.
