"Hand on Your Heart" is a song performed by Australian recording artist and songwriter Kylie Minogue from her second studio album Enjoy Yourself (1989). Again from her previous releases up to "Let's Get to It", the song was produced and written by Stock, Aitken & Waterman. The song was recorded in London, England, through the sessions of the album. The song was released as the album's lead single from Enjoy Yourself on 24 April 1989. "Hand on Your Heart" received positive reviews from most music critics, who deemed it a highlight from the album and praised it as a strong single. For the chart reception, "Hand on Your Heart" had chart success, as the song peaked at number four in her native Australia and also became Minogue's third number one in the United Kingdom, but also peaked inside the top ten in France, Switzerland, Finland and Japan. The song was also performed on some concert tours performed by Minogue, including it on her Enjoy Yourself Tour, Rhythm of Love Tour and was featured on her Showgirl: The Greatest Hits Tour and the Homecoming Tour "Hand on Your Heart" was known as one of Minogue's most well-known singles to date. The song was available as limited editions 7" and 12" posterbags featuring different artwork to the UK release in Australia. In 2006, Swedish singer-songwriter José González released an acoustic cover version of "Hand on Your Heart" as a single. His version peaked at number twenty-nine in the UK. On 24 April 1989, "Hand on Your Heart" was released in the United Kingdom. The song became Minogue's third song to debut at number two on the singles chart, before it peaked at number one the following week. On its third week it was replaced on the top of the chart by the UK Hillsborough disaster charity single "Ferry Cross the Mersey" by The Christians, Holly Johnson, Paul McCartney, Gerry Marsden and Stock, Aitken and Waterman. "Hand on Your Heart" also topped the UK Dance and Indie charts. The song was one of the first singles to sell well on cassette, selling 2,000 copies in the first week of release. This would have been enough to have Minogue enter in at number one, something no female had ever done at the time, but the cassette single was not an eligible format for the chart at the time, meaning The Bangles stayed at number one with "Eternal Flame". Because of this the rules were quickly changed so that cassette singles were allowed. Outside of the UK, the song was also successful. It reached number four in Australia and became Minogue's fifth top five single on the singles chart. In reached the top ten in Finland, France, Japan, and South Africa and the top twenty in Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and Sweden. "Hand on Your Heart" featured a colourful music video that was directed by Chris Langman and filmed at Minogue's hometown in Melbourne, Australia in March 1989. The video features Minogue dancing in a modern house. She appears wearing a dress with a big heart on it that changes colour between vibrant colours of red, blue and yellow, Minogue travels from room to room, dancing playfully for the camera. A live version of the video was also released and featured Minogue performing a special "live remix" in Japan, both versions featured in Kylie's Greatest Hits 87-97 DVD. An alternate version of the "Hand on your heart" video was broadcast on UK TV pre-release yet has never been screened again. On this version Kylie's shoes spin on camera and introduce all three of her new outfits of matching colours. Only one "shoe spin" remains on the final version, featured on her Ultimate DVD. Seen as a cheap video, and Kylie herself has made it clear she felt uncomfortable during the filming, it is however a fan-favourite camp-Kylie moment. Released to music video channels prior to the single's commercial release, the video was a hit, gaining significant airplay on music video channels. The video was released commercially on the Ultimate Kylie companion DVD, released in December 2004.

Hand on Your Heart - Kylie Minogue

Put your hand on your heart and tell me
That we're through, ooh
Oh, put your hand on your heart
Hand on your heart

Well it's one thing to fall in love
But another to make it last
I thought that we were just begining
And now you say we're in the past
Oh, look me in the eye
And tell me we are really through

You know it's one thing to say you love me
But another to mean it from the heart
And if you don't intend to see it through
Why did we ever start
Oh, I wanna hear you tell me
You don't want my love

Put your hand on your heart and tell me
It's all over
I won't believe it till you
Put your hand on your heart and tell me
That we're through, ooh

Oh, put your hand on your heart
Hand on your heart

They like to talk about forever
But most people never get the chance
Do you wanna lose our love together
Do you find a new romance
Oh, I wanna hear you tell me
You don't want my love

Oh, put your hand on your heart
Hand on your heart

(Hand on your heart)
Hand on your heart
(Hand on your heart)
Hand on your heart

Oh, look me in the eye
And tell me we are really through
