"Even It Up" is a song recorded by the rock band Heart. It was released in 1980 as the first single from the band's fifth studio album Bebe le Strange. The song is an uptempo rock and roll number which lyrically is sung by a woman who is demanding that her lover "even it up" by reciprocating the effort that she has put forth in their relationship.

This song is the first of three Heart tunes to utilize the Tower of Power horn section. The band also used TOP on their cover of Aaron Neville's "Tell It Like It Is" and on the scorching hard rocker "Tall Dark Handsome Stranger" from 1990's Brigade.[1]

"Even It Up" peaked at number 33 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, and featured the Tower of Power horn section.
