"Heartbreaker" is a song recorded by Pat Benatar on her 1979 album In the Heat of the Night. It was written and composed by Geoff Gill and Clint Wade. According to the Heartbreaker Songfacts, since the song's writers were British, the lyrics of the song were originally full of UK English expressions and colloquialisms that would be foreign to the American ear. So the publisher gave it to Benatar to clear up and Benatar rewrote it. The song reached #23 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Pat Benatar and "Heartbreaker" appeared in a television ad (along with Cheyenne Kimball) for Candie's Clothing Company. This song was also performed by Benatar and her band in the Charmed episode "Lucky Charmed". While not confirmed as an influence, the lyrics of "Heartbreaker" are similar to the song of the same title by the Crystals with "Heartbreaker, dream-maker, love-taker" being strikingly alike to the Crystal's lyric "Heartbreaker, hip shaker, troublemaker". * American singer Nikki McKibbin performed this song for the top seven week of the 1970s in season 1 of American Idol * American singer Jordin Sparks performed this song in the third week of the semifinals in season 6 of American Idol * Canadian singer Suzi Rawn performed this song on Canadian Idol for the "'80s Week". * On The Search For The Next Doll, four finalists performed this song. (Melissa Reyes, Chelsea Korka, Jaime Benjamin and Sisely Treasure) * The Spirit of Troy University of Southern California Marching Band performs a cover of Heartbreaker after every home game. * In the Seinfeld episode The Nap, Steinbrenner is trying to remember the name of this song. * No Doubt performed a cover of this song in a live concert. * The song appears in the music game Karaoke Revolution Presents:American Idol * The song is also featured in the video game Guitar Hero World Tour. It is considered a difficult song on vocals. In fact, potential Guitar Hero vocals testers must be able to pass the song on Expert difficulty.[1] * The song has been recently featured in a holiday Wal-Mart commercial.
