"Heart Attack"
"Tied Up"

"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).
