"I Saw Him Standing There" by Tiffany was a cover version of The Beatles' song "I Saw Her Standing There". She released it on her debut self-titled album, changing the lyrics to "him" instead of "her".
The music video was a live performance of the song in front of thousands of screaming fans. Like her previous videos, it got a lot of play from video stations such as MTV. In Japan, one of Tiffany's most well loved songs, "Can't Stop A Heartbeat" was the b-side. She and the song were featured in TV commercials for Meiji's "Marble Chocolate".
Tiffany's raspy vocals give new texture to the classic song. It's also considered one of the best covers for the song.
Apparently, before the release of "I Saw Him Standing There" with "Mr. Mambo" as the B-side, MCA released a version of the single with the two sides reversed (with a different catalog number). They may have decided at the last minute to change the A and B sides around.
"I Saw Him Standing There" was another hit for Tiffany. It was a top ten hit in the U.S. as well as the U.K. The fan-favourite "Can't Stop A Heartbeat" was released in Japan before the rest of the world on the b-side on the Japanese release of "I Saw Him Standing There" because it was made for a TV commercial for Meiji "Lucky" chocolate.
