"Lost in Love" is a 1980 song recorded by the Australian soft rock group Air Supply. The song was written by the Bee Gees member Barry & Robin Gibb. The original version of the song appeared on the Life Support album in 1979 and was released as a single in Australia, reaching #13 on the Kent Music Report. The group re-recorded the song for the album Lost In Love in 1980 and this version was released as a single in the US reaching #3 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Air Supply's popularity in their native country during the mid to late 1970s had not been matched elsewhere. Russell travelled to England in 1979, and while there, discovered that the group's Australian record label Big Time Records had sold "Lost in Love" to Arista Records in the United States for distribution. Soon thereafter, their song became a hit on the music charts in the U.S.[1] The song spent four weeks at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in May 1980 and topped the Billboard adult contemporary chart for six weeks that same year.[2]

This song was featured in an episode of Family Guy, "Emission Impossible", and the Australian film Hotel de Love.
