"Somewhere in My Heart" is the twelfth single and biggest hit by the Scottish band Aztec Camera. It was released as the third single from their 1987 studio album Love. The song was produced by Michael Jonzun and written by Roddy Frame. The music video was directed by John Scarlett-Davis and produced by Nick Verden for Radar Films. Frame said in 2014 that the song has been "great" for him, but at the time of creating the album, the song was not "in keeping" with the rest of Love. Frame revealed in a radio interview with the "Soho Social" programme, presented by Dan Gray, that he considered "Somewhere In My Heart" an odd song and initially thought it would be best as a B-side.[1]
