Heart and Soul free piano sheet music by Hoagy Carmichael

About the song

"Heart And Soul" was published in 1938 and it's a popular song. It was written by Frank Loesser and the music was composed by Hoagy Carmichael.

The song was initially performed by Larry Clinton and his Orchestra alongside Bea Wain. It is widely popular among persons who want to learn the piano and it's often taught as an easy two-hand duet, with the chords progression named "50s progression".

"Heart And Soul" was rearranged by The Cleftones, in 1961. This helped the song gain more popularity and it reached number eighteen on the Billboard Hot 100.

It also featured on "American Graffiti", in 1973, and became the band's most popular song. They released it on April 17th, 1961 and it was a mixture of the genres Rhythm and blues and doo-wop.

The song has a very short length, of only 1:52 minutes and it was recorded by the band throughout the year 1959, in a studio from Rochester, New York.

It peaked at number ten on the Billboard Hot 100 Rhythm And Blues Chart. The Cleftones' "Heart And Soul" sold more than 350 000 copies in the United States. The song is placed at 913 on the "The Heart of Rock & Soul: The 1001 Greatest Singles Ever Made" list.

"Heart And Soul" was produced by George Goldner and it received a silver certification from the RIAA.

Lyrics on the song "American Pie", from Don McLean are thought to be reference to "Heart And Soul".

Another cover of the song was made by Jan and Dean, an American duo, pioneers of the 'surf music'. The duo saw "Heart And Soul's" presence in the charts, in 1961, as an opportunity to gain popularity and sign up with Liberty Records. Jan And Dean released the cover with Challenge Records and gained the pursued success.

The single peaked at number 25 which eventually determined Liberty to sign up with the duo. This was the beginning of five top ten singles that were to come for Jan and Dean.

The song was performed in 1977, by Robert Reed and Florence Henderson in the TV series "The Brady Bunch Variety Hour".

Other artists that recorded the song include Glenn Miller, Jan Savitt, Tony Mottola, Livingston Taylor, Sue Raney, The Spaniels, Larry Clinton, The Four Aces and many others.

"Heart And Soul" has proven to be an enduring song, having received demand from the public for over seven decades.
