Dog and Butterfly

“Dog & Butterfly”  is a song recorded by the rock band Heart.  It is the title track to the band’s fourth studio album Dog & Butterfly and was released as the album’s second single.  The song is a more subdued effort from the band, differing from past hard rock-oriented hits, as Ann and Nancy Wilson pulled from their folk music influences.  The song charted moderately in the US in 1979, peaking at #34 on the Billboard Hot 100.  (More from Wikipedia)

The first album by Heart, Dreamboat Annie was released in 1975 and is one of my favorite albums of the 1970’s.  The album spawned two hit singles, “Magic Man” and “Crazy on You”; but it sounds even better as an album to these ears.  Numerous hit albums followed, with hits that included “Barracuda”, “Dog and Butterfly”, “These Dreams”, “What About Love?”, “All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You”, and many more.
