Heart is a rock band whose founding members came from Seattle, Washington, USA in the early 1970s. Going through several lineup changes, the only constant members of the group are sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson.The group rose to fame in the 1970s with their music being influenced by hard rock as well as folk music. After diminishing in popularity by the mid-1980s, the band created a major comeback in 1985, experiencing further success with their power ballads throughout the rest of the decade. By the mid-1990s, Heart left their 1980s’ sound and went back to their hard rock roots which they continue to play today. They have sold over 30 million albums worldwide.Heart was ranked #57 on VH1 “”100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock””.

This song was written by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly, who would go on to write Eternal Flame, The Bangles’ balladic blockbuster. For Heart, the songwriting duo made a key lyrical change from their original version of Alone. They altered the line in the chorus ‘I always fared well on my own’ to ‘Til now, I always got by on my own’ – massively more emotive. This giant of a song reached No.1 in the States and No.3 in the UK. Ann Wilson’s voice goes stratospheric as she relates the tale of a confirmed singleton who suddenly finds true love. But there’s a twist: ‘The secret is still my own’. (In other words, whoever-he-is is oblivious to her affections). Giving a double meaning to the title, Ann later asks: ‘How do I get you alone?’ What fantastic songwriting.

Choice lyric: ‘I never really cared until I met you/ And now it chills me to the bone’

This is the ninth album, but tenth album overall by the band Heart. Released in 1987, the album was a hit, scoring triple platinum sales, and was almost as successful as their previous record. The album itself reached #2 on the Billboard album charts. It contained the hit number one single “Alone.” “Who Will You Run To” reached #7 and “There the Girl” reached #12.

Now THIS is real music my friends! I love me some Heart. while Ann had the classic power “rock chick” voice. Nancy had that beautiful seductive side that just made you fall in love. ?

Με φόρα από το άλμπουμ “Heart” του 1985, οι αδελφές Ann και Nancy Wilson, συνεχίζουν να γνωρίζουν επιτυχία και να ηχογραφούν καλά τραγούδια. Με τα πρωτοκλασάτα  “Alone” (all time classic hit) αλλά και το “Who will you run to”, το “Bad Animals” φθάνει έως το Νο2 του αμερικάνικου Billboard chart έχοντας ξεπεράσει μόνο στην Αμερική τα 3.500.000 αντίτυπα. Και δεν είναι μόνο αυτά τα δύο τραγούδια, αλλά η ομοιογένεια που έχει το άλμπουμ, η αύρα της επιτυχίας, που επί τέλους έχει ξαναβρεί το συγκρότημα μετά από 5 χρόνια αποτυχιών. Η παραγωγή του Ron Nevison είναι από τις πλέον χαρακτηριστικές της δεκαετίας του ’80, με ενδεικτικό κομμάτι το “Wait for an answer” που η Ann Wilson τα δίνει όλα! Πολύ καλή και μπάντα που συνοδεύει τις αδελφές Wilson, όπως ο ντράμερ Denny Carmassi από τους MONTROSE και τους GAMMA, αλλά και WHITESNAKE και Coverdale/Page, ο κιθαρίστας Howard Leese που αργότερα έπαιξε με τον Paul Rodgers αλλά και με τους BAD COMPANY και ο μπασίστας Mark Andes με ένδοξο παρελθόν στους JO JO GUN, CANNED HEAT, SPIRIT και FIREFALL.
