"Hungry Heart" is a song written and performed by Bruce Springsteen on his fifth album, The River. It was released as the album's lead single in 1980 and became Springsteen's first big hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart peaking at number five.
The title is drawn from a line in Alfred, Lord Tennyson's famous poem "Ulysses": "For always roaming with a hungry heart".
Springsteen's voice was slightly sped up on the recording, producing a higher-pitched vocal. Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan of The Turtles sang backup.
