Hungry Heart" is a song written and performed by Bruce Springsteen on his fifth album, The River. It was released as the album's lead single in 1980 and became Springsteen's first big hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart peaking at number five. When Springsteen met Joey Ramone in Asbury Park, New Jersey, Ramone asked him to write a song for The Ramones. Springsteen composed "Hungry Heart" that night, but decided to keep it for himself on the advice of his producer and manager, Jon Landau.

Everybody's got a hungry heart Everybody's got a hungry heart Lay down your money and you play your part Everybody's got a hungry heart. I met her in a Kingstown bar We fell in love I knew it had to end We took what we had and we ripped it apart Now here I am down in Kingstone again. Everybody's got a hungry heart Everybody's got a hungry heart Lay down your money and you play your part Everybody's got a hungry heart. Everybody needs a place to rest Everybody wants to have a home Don't make no difference what nobody says Ain't nobody like to be alone

Springsteen wrote "Hungry Heart" that night but decided to keep it on the advice of his producer and manager, Jon Landau. Springsteen's voice was slightly sped up on the recording, producing a higher vocal. It was the first time a Springsteen song was used in a film. In the 1981 Rolling Stone reader's poll, this was voted best single. Springsteen also won for Best Artist, Album, and Male Singer.

A different mix of HUNGRY HEART was planned for release on Springsteen's 1979 album had it seen the light. See "The River" section below for more details. That mix was included on The Ties That Bind: The River Collection box set in 2015.

Flashback: Bruce Springsteen and CSNY Sing ‘Hungry Heart’. They came together in 1986 at the first Bridge School Benefit, an event which endured until Neil Young called it off this year. We want to express our sincere and profound thanks to all of you for your love and support, demonstrated by way of your attendance at 30 years of Bridge School Benefit Concerts. Bruce Springsteen Plans Intimate Broadway Residency. The news wasn’t all that shocking considering that Neil and Pegi divorced in 2014 after three decades of marriage. The Bridge School Benefit was the only place where they continued to appear together in public, though earlier this year Pegi told Rolling Stone the situation was endurable.
