From The Heart: Greatest Hits is a compilation album by Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler, released on 10 March 2007 by Sony Music Entertainment. The album contains tracks from ten of Tyler's previous studio albums, including her most successful singles "Total Eclipse of the Heart", "Holding Out for a Hero" and "It's a Heartache".

The compilation was most successful in Ireland, where it reached number 2 on the Irish Album Charts.

Background[edit]

The album was the first official release by Tyler since the release of her 2005 studio album, Wings.

Content[edit]

From the Heart: Greatest Hits contains seventeen tracks spanning Tyler's entire career from the release of "Lost in France" (1976) to her most recent single at the time, "Louise". The album opens with Tyler's most notable songs, and later includes tracks that were not singles, such as "Streets of Little Italy" from Hide Your Heart (1988) and "In My Life" from Heart Strings (2003). The compilation concludes with Tyler's 2003 single "Si demain... (Turn Around)", a French version of "Total Eclipse of the Heart" with Kareen Antonn that became a major hit in France. The singles had not been released in the UK until this compilation was produced.
