Our theme this week is breakup songs suggested by Janis of themomshiediaries.
Always a fan of The Bee Gees music, I’m going with this, Heartbreaker, by Dionne Warwick. I bought the album and loved it, especially All The Love in the World. Sadly this was another item that went to the charity shop in later years.
Heartbreaker is a studio album by American singer Dionne Warwick. It was released by Arista Records on September 28, 1982 in the United States. Her fourth album with the label, it was largely written by the Bee Gees, and produced by band member Barry Gibb along with Karl Richardson and Albhy Galuten; Gibb and Galuten also served as musicians on the album. Warwick recorded the songs on Heartbreaker during the spring of 1982.
The album sold an estimated three million copies worldwide and ranks among Warwick’s highest-charting album in most international territories. It peaked at number one in the Norwegian Albums Chart and reached the top five in Sweden, the United Kingdom and in the Netherlands, also entering the top 20 in Austria, Germany, and on the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. In the US, Heartbreaker was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIA) for sales in excess of 500,000 copies.
The title track, the album’s lead single, reached the top of charts around the world and stands as one of Warwick’s biggest career hits, reaching number one in Poland, Portugal, Sweden and on the US Adult Contemporary chart. The following two singles were “Take the Short Way Home” and “All The Love in the World,” the latter of which reached the top ten on the UK Singles Chart. The Heartbreaker Demos, a collection of Barry Gibb’s demos, was released in 2006.
Thank you WIKI
Lyrics are in the video (not the best for matching performance to the soundtrack IMO)
