The Aristocrats: Queen of Hearts

Juice Newton: Queen of Hearts


This song is one I loved when I was little. It came out in 1981, I was only a few years old at the time. The song has just such a fun beat and her voice is just so clear and fresh sounding, how could a little girl not dance around her room with this record playing?

As far as Juice Newton goes, she's best known for her version of the song "Angel of the Morning", the ballad about being someone's one-night-stand. But "Queen of Hearts" came from the same album, and it certainly has a much different feel. Juice left the pop mainstream for a country music career (something you can somewhat hear in this song) and did quite well, but her debut pop album is how most people will remember her.
