"Two Hearts" is a song by Phil Collins. The song reached No. 1 in the United States and Canada in February 1989.
It was composed by Lamont Dozier (of Motown's Holland-Dozier-Holland), with lyrics by Collins, both of whom also produced this song for the 1988 crime comedy film Buster. Both promo-singles of the film, "Two Hearts" and "A Groovy Kind Of Love", topped the U.S charts.
It won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song alongside the Carly Simon song "Let the River Run" from Working Girl (with the latter having beaten the former for the Academy Award for Best Original Song) and the Grammy Award for Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television in 1989.
Two music videos were made, both directed by Jim Yukich: the first one similar to Collins' 1982 video "You Can't Hurry Love" featuring Collins as all four members in a band (named "The Four Pound Notes"), and the other featuring him in a wrestling match against the Ultimate Warrior, which was featured on the Jim Yukich-directed Seriously.. Phil Collins CBS TV special (aired 8 September 1990). The special can be found on the 2004 First Final Farewell Tour DVD.
The song topped the U.S. Hot 100 for two weeks, the U.S. adult contemporary chart for five weeks, and also reached No. 6 on the UK Singles Chart. It opened the radio station BBC Hereford and Worcester, appropriate in that the station was based in two different places.
The B-side features Anne Dudley and the London Film Orchestra performing "The Robbery", also on the Buster soundtrack.
