Straight From the Heart: The Very Best of Bonnie Tyler is a compilation album by Bonnie Tyler.

Content[edit]

This compilation was released in 1995, but doesn't contain any of her newer material from the early 1990s. Her 1984/85 hit "Holding Out for a Hero" starts the album, followed by "Faster Than the Speed of Light" and her cut from the Metropolis soundtrack called "Here She Comes". A special appearance on the album is "Come On Give Me Loving" from the B-side of the "Sitting On the Edge of the Ocean" single from 1979, and her version of "Piece of My Heart" is included. The collection concludes with a non-album 1979 single, "Married Men".
