H ere it is, Marty Balin’s biggest hit. It’s fluffy soft, the sort of melt-in-your-mind pop that Bob Welch was making, well deserving of the one-hit-wonder tag. The B side is actually a nonalbum track, “Freeway,” that rocks pretty hard for faceless product. Unfortunately, the musical landscape of the ‘80s endured a lot of directionless energy like this as veteran artists sought to position themselves for the future. There must have been some grumbling that the crumbling Starship get out of the way and let the young punks have at it. Today, “Hearts” is a hardened artifact, likely to turn up on compilations of romantic mood music from the early ‘80s alongside the themes for American Hero and Arthur.
