"There's the Girl" is a song recorded by the American rock band, Heart. It was composed by Holly Knight and Heart band member Nancy Wilson. "There's The Girl" was released in a remixed version as the third single from Heart's ninth studio album, Bad Animals. Knight is known as a very successful songwriter who was responsible for penning many hit singles during the 1980s.

Like Heart's 1986 #1 single "These Dreams", the lead vocals on "There's the Girl" were performed by Nancy Wilson, rather than Ann Wilson (though most fans did not realize this until the video was released or they saw the song performed live), the usual lead singer for the group. The single climbed to #12 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and was also a Top-40 single on the UK Singles Chart, where it peaked at #34.

Versions and Formats[edit]

The 7" version was remixed from "Bad Animals" and ran for 3:50, whilst the 12" and CD single version featured an extended remix, running at 7:22. A very limited edition of the UK 12" single release came with a giant double-sided poster.

An even more scarce format of this release is the Japanese 3" CD single, which features an exclusive extended version of Heart's previous single "Alone" clocking in at 5:30, as well as the unedited 12" Remix of "There's The Girl" which does not have an early fade-out. Both of these tracks are exclusive to this Japanese release and not found elsewhere.[1]
