Save Up All Your Tears

Album: Hide Your Heart (1988)


  • This was written by Desmond Child and Diane Warren, who are two of the most successful songwriters of the '90s and '00s. Warren has a talent for writing emotional lyrics like those found in this song, where the singer finds her strength in a broken relationship. Child, who produced this track, has crafted the music for many hits, including "Livin' La Vida Loca" and "You Give Love A Bad Name."
  • Three very distinctive female vocalists have recorded this song. Tyler cut the original version, followed by Robin Beck in 1989 and Cher in 1991. Cher's version peaked at #37 in both the UK and US, while Robin Beck's cover reached the Top 10 in both Switzerland and Germany. >>
