"Hot Rod Hearts" by Robbie Dupree

Song#:  0264
Date:  07/19/1980
Debut:  74
Peak:  15
Weeks:  18
Genre:  Pop, Soft Rock



Pop Bits:  Although not as successful as "Steal Away" (#6), this follow-up song did very well and is just as recognizable as the hit that put him on the map. It was a great career start but it was going to be one that would prove to be difficult to follow-up.

ReduxReview:  Another solid song from Dupree. It's not quite as good as "Steal Away," but it is a worthy follow-up and a terrific single.

ReduxRating:  7/10

Trivia:  Dupree's first real recognition as a songwriter came in 1976. His song "When You're Down" won for Best R&B Song in the American Songwriting Festival.
