"Heartbeat" is a song by the band King Crimson, released as a single in 1982. It is the band's first love song as it veered away from the progressive rock King Crimson were previously known for. The song was also recorded by King Crimson guitarist and singer Adrian Belew for his 1990 solo album, Young Lions. In the beginning of the music video there is a stream of faces blending into one another, one of the earliest examples of the dissolving/morphing technique which would later be employed in Godley & Creme's "Cry" and Michael Jackson's "Black or White".
