"Breathless" is a single by Irishmarker folk/pop/rock group The Corrs, released in 2000, taken from their third studio album In Blue.

"Breathless" was co-written and produced by Shania Twain's producer and then-husband, Robert John "Mutt" Lange. The song scaled the charts all over the world, including hitting number 1 in Irelandmarker, Francemarker and the UK -- their only British chart-topper to date. It also went top ten in Australia and #34 in the United Statesmarker in March 2001, giving the Corrs their only US Top 40 hit. The single was the 33rd biggest-selling in the UK in 2000. It was also featured in the opening scene of the film The Wedding Date, starring Debra Messing; it plays in the background while Messing's character races around her New York Citymarker apartment, trying to prepare to catch a plane.

In 2001 the song was nominated for a Grammy Award for best pop performance by a duo or group.

Video

The first original, and fabulously "breathless" live video shows the Corrs indoors in a small venue (*location sought*). While the quality of the video is low, it highlights the budding Andrea leading the Corrs in the most memorable rendition ever performed of the sexy suggestive song.

The "official" video released for the track shows the Corrs at an outdoor concert at a small airstrip with a hanger in the middle of the desert. They arrive in a Douglas DC-3 airplane (the registration N26MA is clearly visible on the side) and perform the song for an audience of bikers before the final shot shows the DC-3 leaving.
