Count On Me
"Hearts" is a song written by Jesse Barish and performed by Marty Balin in 1981, included in his debut solo album Balin. It was Balin's third single in nineteen years (after his distant and unsuccessful songs "Nobody but You" and "I Specialize in Love"/"You Are the One" of 1962.) and the biggest hit of his solo career.

It reached #8 on the Billboard Hot 100, #9 on the U.S. adult contemporary chart, and #20 on the U.S. rock chart in 1981.

The song was produced by John Hug.

The single ranked #41 on the Billboard Year-End Hot 100 singles of 1981.
