THE ROCK SONG OF THE DAY IS: CHRIS REA – I CAN HEAR YOUR HEARTBEAT

"I Can Hear Your Heartbeat"
"I Can Hear Your Heartbeat" is the second single taken from Chris Rea's album "Water Sign", released in 1983.

The album forms one of the cornerstones of the career of Chris Rea, since it was almost never released. The record company showed so little interest in doing anything with Chris Rea at all, that they would not even pay the money to record the album professionally. What was actually released was the demo album that Rea recorded by himself, as a demo for the record company, with a few overdubs. Hence the extensive use of electronic drum machines. The irony is, the album was well received, and most people thought the new electronic sound of Chris Rea was rather good. Little did they know that tracks such as I Can Hear Your Heartbeat would probably have been recorded in a different way.
