Kurt Maloo - The Captain of Her Heart


"The Captain of Her Heart" is a single by the Swiss duo Double in 1985. Taken from their 1985 album Blue, the song is a ballad about a girl who stops waiting for her absent lover to return. The song was an international success, reaching No. 8 in the UK Singles Chart and No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song also made Double the first Swiss act to hit the Top 40 in the Billboard Hot 100.

In a retrospective review of the song, Allmusic journalist Stewart Mason suggested that the song is "one of the great lost one hit wonders of the mid-1980s." Mason wrote: "The Swiss duo never managed to capitalize on this song's casual sophistication and melodic grace, but it remains a glorious anomaly."  The prominent saxophone on the song was played by Christian Ostermeier.
