Last Song: “Hide Your Heart” by Kiss

Great job Penny ( @pennyelaines) and Frida (@carrjam94)

The ride was over but the story doesn’t end, he took her heart
She looked him in the eye and said they couldn’t meet again
You could see The Trouble Start

And a special thanks to my friend Kurt, who not only got this right, but pointed out that several other artists performed this song between 1988-89. It was written by Paul Stanley, Desmond Child and Holly Knight.

It was first performed by Bonnie Tyler in 1988:

Next, it was covered by Molly Hatchet in 1989:

Then Ace Frehley covered the song on his Trouble Walkin’ album, which was released 4 days before Kiss’ Hot in the Shade in 1989.

And the last version released in 1989 was by Robin Beck. This is probably my favorite:

Do any of you have a favorite version?
