With more Top 10 hits than any other female-fronted music group in history, beginning with such ’70s classics as “Crazy on You,” “Barracuda,” “Magic Man,” and “Straight On,” Rolling Stone hailed Heart’s “sister team of Nancy and Ann Wilson. . . [for] shrewdly pulling off a Led Zep role reversal,” while still succeeding in mainstream Top 40 Radio. The band rode a second wave of even greater commercial success throughout the 1980s, producing such smash hits as “These Dreams,” “Who You Gonna Run To?”, “Alone,” “Never,” “Stranded,” “There’s the Girl,” “What About Love?”, and “All I Wanna Do (Is Make Love to You),” going on to sell a cumulative 30+ million albums worldwide!
