About The Song

Released as the title track for his 46th studio album, Lost In The Feeling marked a significant point in Twitty’s trajectory. While he had established himself as a country music powerhouse since the late 1950s, with chart-topping hits like “It’s Only Make Believe” and “Hello Darlin’,” the early 1980s saw a subtle shift. The genre itself was undergoing a period of modernization, embracing elements of pop and rock alongside traditional country instrumentation. This is where Lost In The Feeling steps in, a song that perfectly embodies this transitional phase.

Composed by songwriter Lewis Anderson, Lost In The Feeling carries the unmistakable essence of classic country music – a simple yet poignant narrative set against the backdrop of a twangy guitar and a steady drumbeat. The lyrics paint a vivid picture of two lovers on the dance floor, lost in the intoxicating embrace of the moment.

Lines like “We step out on the dance floor, the band starts to play / Holding you close I get carried away” capture the heady rush of physical connection and emotional vulnerability that comes with surrendering to the music.

However, beneath this seemingly straightforward love song lies a subtle current of innovation. The production, helmed by Twitty himself alongside Jimmy Bowen, incorporates subtle synth elements that were becoming increasingly popular in country music at the time.

This adds a touch of contemporary polish without detracting from the song’s core country roots. The result is a soundscape that feels both familiar and fresh, a testament to Twitty’s ability to adapt to changing musical tides without compromising his signature style.

Lyrics

“Lost In The Feeling”

We step out on the dance floor
The band starts to play
Holding you close I get carried away
Finding that falling is easy to do
Lost in the feeling with you.

Time standing still as I whirl you around
We’re dancing without
Even touching the ground
Finding that falling is easy to do
Lost in the feeling with you.

No words are spoken
That don’t need to be said
You and the music
Had gone to my head.

But I’ll just go on
When the music is through
Lost in the feeling with you
Lost in the feeling with you.

Lost in the feeling with you…
