Like all of Marie’s recordings to that date, “Feels Like I’m in Love” failed to become a hit in the UK, but it did become a popular disco item first in Scotland and eventually all over Britain. The track’s prolonged popularity in the clubs led Pye to re-release the song in the summer of 1980, after a No. 61 debut on the chart dated 2 August “Feels Like I’m in Love” entered the Top Ten 23 August and spent the weeks of 13 and 20 September at No. 1. The track also enjoyed international success with chart rankings of No. 6 in Austria, No. 2 in Belgium, No. 6 in Australia, No. 5 in (Germany), No. 3 in the Netherlands and No. 3 in Ireland. In addition the track reached No. 10 on the U.S. dance charts in 1981.

The intense success of “Feels Like I’m in Love” did not result in any significant stardom for its singer. The decline of Marie’s mainstream career became clear when her UK releases subsequent to “Feels Like I’m in Love” charted first outside the Top 20 (“Loving Just For Fun” #21; “Hot Love” #22) and then outside the Top 50 (“Love Trial” #51). Marie continued to record dance tracks, through which she remained a presence on the international club scene. She took a break from recording in 1984, around the time she met her husband and began a family which would extend to five daughters and one son.
