"Thunder in My Heart" is a song recorded by Leo Sayer for the album Thunder in My Heart and originally released as a single in 1977. It reached number 22 in the UK at that time. In the US it reached number 38 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 35 on the Cashbox chart.

It became a number one hit single in the UK when a remix by Meck (titled "Thunder in My Heart Again") was released as a single in 2006 (see 2006 in music). "Thunder in My Heart Again" stayed at number one for two weeks. It also peaked at #7 in the Dutch Top 40, remaining in that chart for 17 weeks.

A year later, Leo Sayer appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in the UK and claimed credit for this song getting to #1 as he said:

"It wasn't just because it was a hot tune, it was all because "Oh my God, it's Leo Sayer"."
