The band has had a lot of names since forming in 1967: The Army, Hocus Pocus, White Heart, and finally, in 1973, Heart. It was then that sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson joined the group. They have truly been the heart of Heart ever since.

After enjoying success in the 1970s, Heart lost some traction in the early 1980s. By recalibrating their sound, as well as their hair, Heart leapt to the top of the Billboard charts in the second half of the decade with their albums Heart, Bad Animals, and Brigade. Below are three of the biggest singles from those peak years.

  • What About Love? (1985)

  • These Dreams (1986)

  • Alone (1987)
