“It was the third song that I wrote for the LP. I remember thinking that I wanted to write a very ballady song, something that people would never think of as a Big Country song, a very direct boy/girl lost and found song.”
—Stuart Adamson, interview






’Hold The Heart’ is track 5 on the soundtrack to the motion picture ‘P.I. (Private Investigations)’ (1987) 5:33 ◆ 
 
“I’ve watched Big Country making videos in the snow in Oregon and in the rain in Scotland. This haunting Stuart Adamson melody is placed over a collage of Hollywood at night.”
—Nigel Dick (in the liner notes to the P.I. soundtrack)
