She also had a top 10 hit in 1987 with the song "Mind Over Matter" which is featured in the movie Summer School.
The song was originally meant for Blondie lead singer Debbie Harry, but due to legal circumstances the singer dropped out and the song went to Elizabeth instead.
Kelly Ripa can be seen featured on the now defunct dance show Dance Party USA lip synching the song to the audience in one of the many featured dancers routines.
Daily is also a musician as well as a singer. She plays guitar, harmonica, keyboards, and percussion.
In her 1988 song, "Some People", she plays guitar and harmonica. Other singers had to join in because Elizabeth cannot sing and play the harmonica at the same time.
