"Out of the Blue" is the third single by American singer-songwriter-actress Debbie Gibson. The title track of her debut album, the song was written by Gibson and co-produced and co-arranged with Fred Zarr, with Douglas Breitbart as executive producer. Released as a single in January 1988, "Out of the Blue" gave Gibson her highest chart placing at the time by reaching No. 3 in the U. S. In the UK, it did slightly less well than her two previous singles, stalling at No. 19. As a maxi single, "Out of the Blue," like "Shake Your Love" before it, took No. 1 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.
