Heartless



I'm not going to rehash the tangled and somewhat sordid history of the Heart album MAGAZINE. You can do that on Wikipedia. However, I got to hear the song "Heartless" this weekend, and I realized something kind of poetic about how everything went down.

If you read the link, you know that Mushroom Records, Heart's old label, lost the band. They still went behind their backs and put out a slapdash album, but Heart wasn't coming back to Mushroom no matter what. So I find it interesting that the label loses the band Heart, they issue an album, and there is only one single extracted - "Heartless".

Oddly appropriate, given the circumstances.
