28 April 2012 - Dionne Warwick - Heartbreaker

Dionne Warwick was known for her R&B ballads for a very long time.  In 1982, her career had been stalled for about a decade.  The Bee Gees still believed in her, though, and wrote her this gem, the title song for her 1982 album.  It was a hit all over the world, and different than the gospel-influenced sound from earlier in her career.

It wouldn't be her last hit.  "That's What Friends Are For" was to come a few years later, partially due to the strength of this comeback.  This song has a ballad feel, still, but is far more impassioned than her earlier work.  It was an excellent song choice.
