"Hearts," a hit for Marty Balin in 1981, is one of my all-time favorite songs.
"Hearts" was written by Jesse Barish, who emailed me to say he liked my cover! What an honor! Then we met and became friends. And on July 11, 2009 in Venice, CA, I recorded him performing his version of "Hearts." It's amazing. You can see it here: http://youtu.be/5UwxyaxPvVw
He's a very nice man and a very talented musician! He also wrote "Count on Me," which was a hit for Jefferson Starship.
