Default The Heart of the Matter

"The Heart of the Matter" is a song recorded by American rock singer Don Henley from his third solo studio album, The End of the Innocence (1989). Written by Henley, Mike Campbell, and J. D. Souther.

This song is dedicated to all the lovers of our world, who, for some reason or another, lost the flame and the kindness of love!!!
This song is also dedicated to all troubled peoples asking and searching for forgiveness, in their paths toward peace and contentment!!!


And more importantly, this song is for all the people in our lives that has the ability to forgive.

Choose to love, do forgive, for one's healthy propagation of good in mind and spirit!!!

A great song!!! One of those songs that seems to stick with me, although I'm not all that familiar with either the album or the song itself... but the sentiment is what sticks, I guess, as it is a truly genuine bit of wisdom.

Good job, Rene!

(Man! That's a LOT of guitars you have surrounding you!)

Rene, one of your very best! Your arrangement really captures the spirit of the original, but it is all yours

Really appreciate what you do with just a guitar and vocal!

Hi jseth,
Indeed, a great song, by a great artist.
And I agree with the wisdom, as the lyrics and the message of this classic is truly something that all peoples need, and learn!!!
I would dare to ask, which is harder,
- to ask for forgiveness
- or to give forgiveness
True forgiveness is not easy to execute.
One can say it, but not followed through with the heart.
Thank you so much!!!
Respectfully,
Rene

p.s. I simply love guitars, and I think I am done with my GAS, guitar acquisition syndrome, hahahahahaha!!!!!!!!

Nice choice of songs. I really liked Heart of the Matter when it was released by Don Henley but didn't fully appreciate it until the Eagles played it on the unplugged portion of their Hell Freezes Over concert.

Excellent job, Rene... really enjoyable.
