"It's a Heartache" is a country rock song that was recorded separately by Bonnie Tyler and Juice Newton in 1977. Tyler's version charted in the UK in November 1977, Newton's charted in Mexico in 1977, and both versions charted in the United States in 1978. The song was also recorded by Ronnie Spector of the Ronettes in 1978, but it was not a hit. Authorship is credited to Ronnie Scott & Steve Wolfe, who became Tyler's managers, songwriters, and producers when they saw her in Wales in 1976.
Tyler's version of the song, which was produced by David Mackay, proved to be the most successful, peaking at #4 in the U.K. and #3 in the United States (where it was also a Top Ten hit on the Country Music chart), and #1 in several European countries and Australia. With physical sales in excess of 6 million copies, Tyler's version is one of the best-selling singles of all time.
