Heartbreaker by Dionne Warwick

Album: HeartbreakerReleased: 1982Charted:
10
2
  • This song was written Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb of The Bee Gees. The Brothers Gibb also added their vocals, which are clearly heard during the chorus. (thanks, Jeff - Austin, TX)
  • This song is about a one-sided relationship, one where Dr. Phil would tell Dionne that "He's just not that into you." She knows that he's no good for her, but has to fight through the feelings she has in order to give him up.
  • Warwick wasn't thrilled about this song, but she knew that recording something written by The Bee Gees was in the best interests of her career. It became her biggest hit since "I'll Never Love This Way Again."

On January 9th 1983, "Heartbreaker" by Dionne Warwick peaked at #10 (for 2 weeks) on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; it had entered the chart on October 3rd, 1982 and spent 22 weeks on the Top 100...
And on December 12th, 1982 it reached #1 (for 1 week) on Billboard's Adult Contemporary Tracks chart, #2 in Australia & the U.K., and #14 on Billboard's R&B Singles chart...
Ms. Warwick, born Marie Dionne *Warrick, celebrated her 73rd birthday less than a month ago on December 12th (2013)...
* Surfed the internet and can't find the reason behind why her last name was changed from Warrick to Warwick???

Great song and one of my favorites! The Bee Gees just get it. I wish they'd record again!Aimee - Plant City, Fl
This is just one of five different songs that have charted with the title of "Heartbreaker"; the others are by Pat Benatar, Dolly Parton, Grand Funk Railroad, & Mariah Carey...Barry - Sauquoit, Ny
Although her biggest Top 10 hits have been when she has collaborated with other artists, this one and "I'll Never Love This Way Again" are the very best of her 50-year career!Les - Joplin, Mo
A great tune by Dionne and the Gibbs.Tanya - La Verne, Ca
