This was the biggest hit from Passionworks
, the last Heart album released on Epic Records. Heart was one of the biggest bands of the '70s, but the '80s found them declining in sales. With Passionworks
underperforming, Epic dropped them, and they signed with Capitol.
At Capitol's behest, they used outside songwriters and softened their rough musical edges, resulting in the hits "These Dreams
" and "Never." Once again, they were one of the biggest acts in rock, just a softer rock.
