Heart

Heart got their start in 1963 in Seattle, Washington formed by bassist Steve Fossen and brothers Roger Fisher (guitar/mandolin) and Mike Fisher (producer and sound engineer). The group went by the names Army and White Heart before settling on just Heart in the early 1970s. Ann Wilson joined the group in 1970. Romance sprang up between her and Mike, and she came along when they moved to Vancouver to avoid the Vietnam draft some years later.

Soon after the move, Ann's sister Nancy Wilson joined the group. She became romantically involved with Mike's brother, Roger. The band gained a following in Canada and was signed to the small Canadian label Mushroom, which issued their debut album, "Dreamboat Annie", in 1976. "Dreamboat Annie" was recorded with new members guitarist/keyboardist Howard Leese, and drummer Michael Derosier. The album included Heart's first U.S. chart entry, "Crazy on You," which peaked at #35 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Magic Man," the second single from the album reached #9 on the charts and "Dreamboat Annie," the third single rose to #42.

In 1977, Heart moved to CBS affiliate Portrait. This decision didn't go over well with Mushroom owner Shelly Siegel, and a legal battle ensued. After the smoke cleared, Heart's second album "Little Queen" was released on Portrait in 1977. It was a substantial hit, but wasn't the enormous hit their debut album was. Only one single, "Barracuda," from the album made the Top 40 this time around. Curiously, the single, "Heartless," from the unfinished LP "Magazine" released by Mushroom charted higher than Little Queen's other two singles.

Heart's third official album, "Dog and Butterfly", came out the next year. It only managed to reach #17 on the Billboard 200, and showed that Heart's success was declining (at least for the time being). The Fisher/Wilson romances came to an end following the album, and Roger left the group.

In 1980, Bebe Le Strange was released. In 1982, after releasing their 6th album "Private Audition", Fossen and Derosier left the group, and were replaced by ex-Spirit and Firefall bassist Mark Andes and former Gamma drummer Denny Carmassi.

After releasing "Passionworks" in 1983 and switching to Capitol Records, Heart broke in to the pop scene with a self-titled album in 1985 that would be their biggest, resulting in four Top Ten singles, "What About Love?," "Never," "These Dreams," and "Nothin' at All." This album marked a significant turning point for the band as this was the first album the band employed outside songwriters for (only 3 of the songs, and none of the hits, were written by band members) and they went for a much more synthesizer-heavy commercial radio friendly sound. As well as establishing their mainstream success, the album also established the style that would take Heart through the '80s and into the early 90's, a mix of power ballads and pop rock. Further albums in this vein followed in the form of Bad Animals (which netted the band three more Top Ten singles including their second number one record "Alone") and Brigade.

Following Brigade the band went on hiatus, as Ann and Nancy formed an acoustic group dubbed the Lovemongers, with Sue Ennis and Frank Cox.

Returning with 1993's "Desire Walks On", the band continued touring through the mid-90s, and released two live albums, "The Road Home", which features acoustic renderings of some of their biggest hits, and "Alive in Seattle." Heart went on hiatus again in 1997, when the Wilson sisters worked on their acoustic group again. In 1999 Nancy released a solo album "Live at McCabe's Guitar Shop", and she has written scores of individual songs for several of her husband's (Cameron Crowe) films - including "Vanilla Sky", "ElizabethTown" and "Almost Famous". In 2004, the band released "Jupiter's Darling", their first studio album in 11 years, which enjoyed only limited success, perhaps because of the shift away from the power pop sound they became known for at the height of their fame. Anne's first solo album "Hope & Glory" is scheduled for release on 9/11/2007.

Lyrics

    It was a rainy night when he came into sight
    Standing by the road, no umbrella, no coat
    So I pulled up alongside and I offered him a ride
    He accepted with a smile, so we drove for a while

    I didn't ask him his name, this lonely boy in the rain
    Fate, tell me it's right, is this love at first sight?
    Please don't make it wrong just stay for the night

    All I wanna do is make love to you
    Say you will, you want me too
    All I wanna do is make love to you
    I've got lovin' arms to hold on to

    So we found this hotel, It was a place I knew well
    We made magic that night, oh he did everything right
    He brought the woman out of me so many times, easily
    And in the morning when he woke all I left him was a note

    I told him, "I am the flower you are the seed
    We walked in the garden, we planted a tree
    Don't try to find me, please don't you dare
    Just live in my memory, you'll always be there

    All I wanna do is make love to you
    One night of love was all we knew
    All I wanna do is make love to you
    I've got lovin' arms to hold on to

    We made love, love like strangers
    All night long we made love

    Then it happened one day we came round the same way
    You can imagine his surprise when he saw his own eyes
    I said, "Please, please understand, I'm in love with another man
    And what he couldn't give me was the one little thing that you can"

    All I wanna do is make love to you
    One night of love was all we knew
    All I wanna do is make love to you
    Come on say you will, you want me too

    All I wanna do is make love to you
    One night of love was all we knew
    All I wanna do is make love to you
    Say you will baby, you want me too
    All night long, all night long
    All night long, all night long

    All I wanna do, all I wanna do
    All I wanna do, all I wanna do
    All I wanna do is make love to you
    One night of love was all we knew, yeah
