Background:  Self Control was the third album by Laura Branigan, and the album reached #23 on the U.S. album charts, helped by the #4 single, “Self Control” and the #20 single “The Lucky One.” gave Self Control a 3 star review:

Laura Branigan’s third album capitalized on the Euro-dance-pop and affecting ballads that made her an international star while allowing her to grow as a vocalist. Her collections, always uneven in terms of material, benefit mostly from her stellar voice, and this is no exception.”The Lucky One” and “Heart” start slow and build to a crescendo, perfectly showcasing her range without being obvious. The title track, about finding sex in the seamy side of town, sparked a bit of a controversy, but ended up being her second biggest hit.
