Two hearts beat as one this week with two monster hits from Heart in Rock Band 4!
“Crazy On You” was America’s first exposure to Heart, after a pair of singles from Dreamboat Annie were released in Canada prior to the American release. The song reached the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100, but as everyone knows, it has grown far beyond that and is now one of the most memorable songs of the ‘70s. “Crazy On You” is a staple for the band and classic rock radio. The song kicks off with a quick acoustic line and heads into great parts for everyone. The guitar part is one of the most iconic progressions in rock, while drummers will be caught by the hi-hat work in the choruses. It’s also some of the strongest vocals Ann Wilson has ever performed, so expect a huge range to cover with little time to prepare.
Next up is “Magic Man”, which was released as the group’s second single in the United States. A continued climb in popularity helped make “Magic Man” a top 10 hit on both the Hot 100 and the Cash Box Top 100, cementing the band’s success from their very first album. Again, “Magic Man” makes for another enduring ‘70s release, and there are frequent debates on which of these two songs is more loved. Considered by some to be among the best vocal performances in all of music, it’s amazing for vocalists looking for a challenge OR those looking to belt it out at parties! You’ll also find great guitar work (no surprise there), with a quick guitar solo and before you know it, another longer 90 second solo.
Songs can be purchased individually for $1.99. The Rock Band Rivals Season 9 Spotlight Pass can be purchased for $14.99.
