The early 1980's were not as successful as the previous decade for Heart, and with their careers in decline they turned to outside writers for some of the biggest hits of their entire careers, including "All I Wanna Do", "Never", "These Dreams" and "Alone" in 1985. Despite singer Ann Wilson not liking the theme or lyrics to the song (the song was banned from radio in Ireland), she realized the song had potential to be a massive hit.
The lead single from their tenth studio album, Brigade, was written by Mutt Lange, famous for producing some of the biggest albums of the 1980's including AC/DC's Back in Black, Def Leppard's Hysteria, and Foriegner's 4. Originally written for Don Henley, it was first released by Dobie Gray on his 1979 self-titled album. While this version went unnoticed, Heart's recording of the song reached #2 on Billboard.
