"If Looks Could Kill"

"If Looks Could Kill" is the name of a song recorded by rock band Heart. It was released as the fifth and final single from the band's self-titled 1985 album Heart. Musically the song is similar to early Heart tunes, as it is an aggressive, hard rock number. Lyrically, Ann Wilson sings to a cheating lover, letting him know that "if looks could kill / you'd be lying on the floor".

After four top-ten U.S. singles (including the number-one "These Dreams") from the Heart album, "If Looks Could Kill" stalled at number fifty-four on the Billboard Hot 100. The band would rebound the following year with Bad Animals, and their most successful single yet ("Alone").

"If Looks Could Kill" was recorded by Pamala Stanley in 1985. Stanley's pop version was featured in the Arnold Schwarzenegger film Raw Deal in 1986.
