Somewhere in My Heart

Album: Love (1987)
Charted: 3

Songfacts®:

  • This straightforward love song was almost omitted from Love's tracklisting, since it was deemed a bad stylistic fit. Released as the album's third single, the catchy tune made #3 on the UK singles chart to become Aztec Camera's biggest hit.

    "I didn't really get it," frontman Roddy Frame admitted to Mojo magazine, "until I was being driven down Ladbroke Grove one day and the sun was shining and someone was in a convertible and I heard it blaring out on their radio. It's one of those songs."
