To be clear - my vote (Masterpiece) was based on the song, not the video.

uchhhh!
the 1st 2 LPs and maybe D&B were great records with solid band written songs.

Once they stepped outside the band for songwriting, and I really like Holly Knight and others, it all turned to noise and drivel. Ron Nevison was a brilliant record maker. But this is @#$%& to me.

Those haircuts! Geez, and they're coming back, like much of the worst of the 80s. Can't wait til Milli Vanilli comes back.

and OMFG that smoke & fire video. I'd bet the Wilsons would love to forget it. (other than the $$$$).
80s power rock ballads do not age well to my ears.
I rather listen to Anita Bryant.

But man, they could cut a Zep cover like no one else.

Toronto, eh?

The song was originally recorded in 1983 by Canadian rock group Toronto, of which songwriters Sheron Alton and Brian Allen were members. (The other songwriter, Jim Vallance, was not a member of Toronto, though he played drums on Toronto's recording of the song.) However, the rest of the band elected not to release the song, and the frustration Allen and Alton faced in being unable to convince their bandmates to feature this and other material on Toronto's albums led to their departure from the group.

IMHO - the song: not one of their best, typical 80's "product". The video: a typical MTV nightmare, the smoke, the blinding backlights, the fire, the humongous gobs of "product" poofing up the hair, the bizarre clothing. But I do like the hammer Ann first carries out.

If I had a dollar for every time I saw an MTV video and said WTF does that have to do with the subject and lyrics of the song? ...

I was wrong everybody, “Alone” is the one with the dope solo.

I remember Roger Daltrey’s reaction to the MTV explosion back in the Eighties, “Great video, too bad about the song.”

Heart's 1970s output is amazing.

80s, not so much (to me).

and I'm a child of the 70s & 80s (born in 65)

much better band. Nothing on Dave, but they should have gone with Ann.
Only other voice as potent (and perhaps more in her day) Grace.

But I think they needed another guitarist .... or 2.

Ann Wilson has a voice as big as her.... she's got a huge voice. It saved some pretty average pop songs they produced in the 80s.

I do prefer both the song and video for "Who Will You Run To?"
