Heart by Pet Shop Boys was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, April 9, 1988 spending 3 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This was originally written by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe during sessions for their first album Please in 1986. The duo intended to offer this to Madonna or Hi-NRG singer Hazell Dean but they eventually decided to record it themselves. The song is, unusually for a Pet Shop Boys number, a straightforward love song. The video directed by Jack Gold retells the story of Dracula and features Ian McKellen as Dracula. It was based on the 1922 film Nosferatu.
