This world can hurt you

     It cuts you deep and leaves a scar

     Things fall apart, but nothing breaks like a heart

If ever there was a song destined for Top-40 hit-hood, this is it:  Newly released “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart” with tiny Miley Cyrus and her over-sized talent and personalty as lead singer; Mark Ronson, the magic behind “Uptown Funk” with Bruno Mars, which won 2016’s Grammy for “Record of the Year” as the producer; and a song about heartache–that’s always winner– especially when sung by a woman who can belt it out, like Bonnie Tyler did in 1983’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart.”  That song has over 547 million you-tube views, confirming that when a song connects, it’s a long -term relationship.

Singing about heartbreak requires honest emotion and Cyrus, like Tyler,  delivers

Ronson on a roll:  The British songwriter, DJ, musician and record producer also collaborated with Lady Gaga on her current hit, Golden Globe winner and Oscar nominated song “Shallow” from ‘Star Is Born’ (BMU 10/29/2018).
