“Anyone Who Had a Heart” is a song written by Burt Bacharach (music) and Hal David (lyrics) for Dionne Warwick in 1963. Warwick’s original recording hit the Top Ten in the United States, Canada, Spain, The Netherlands, South Africa, Belgium and Australia in January 1964. Released on the Scepter label in November 1963, “Anyone Who Had a Heart” broke in Detroit, where it reached #1 that December. The track became Warwick’s first Top Ten single in January 1964, peaking at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the Cash Box Pop 100 that February, also reaching #6 on the Cash Box R&B chart. The track was also a hit in Canada, reaching #11 on the hit parade for Toronto radio station CHUM, the country’s most influential rock music broadcaster (national charts for Canada were not published during the chart run of “Anyone Who Had a Heart”).

Warwick recorded “Anyone Who Had a Heart” at Bell Sound Studios in Manhattan in November 1963, in a session produced by Bacharach which also yielded “Walk On By” and “In the Land of Make Believe”. According to published reports, Warwick nailed the tune in only one take – though an alternate remix of the take appears on a compilation album released in 1976 by Springboard International.
