Nobody wants a funked up Heart Attack unless it’s an Uptown Funk remix mashed with Olivia’s Grammy nominated song, Heart Attack!! https://soundcloud.com/onj-remixes
“Heart Attack” was one of two new songs recorded for the 1982 (Double Platinum) greatest hits package titled Olivia’s Greatest Hits Vol. 2. The song was the first single released from the album. The success of “Physical” led to an international tour and the release of her second hits collection, the double platinum Olivia’s Greatest Hits Vol. 2 (No. 16 Pop), which yielded two more Top 40 singles: “Heart Attack” (No. 3 Pop) and “Tied Up” (No. 38 Pop). In 1983, Alvin and the Chipmunks covered the song for their TV series episode “Angelic Alvin” (with new lyrics created for the episode). The song features American saxophonist, composer, arranger, conductor and bandleader of the west coast jazz/jazz fusion ensemble the L.A. Express Tom Scott on horns. An innovative music video directed by Brian Grant received heavy airplay on MTV. Even though there are no remixes or edits of “Heart Attack” I still wanted to post it for those of us who love hearing these tracks in their vinyl glory. I also wanted to bookend it with yesterdays “Tied Up” post. Olivia was an important part of 70’s & 80’s pop music paving the way for artists like Madonna and Taylor Swift. Olivia’s music video’s were innovative and pioneering winning the first ever Grammy for a long form video album in 1983 “Olivia Physical”.
