About Hey Deanie

"Hey Deanie" is a song written by Eric Carmen. It was a popular hit single by Shaun Cassidy that was released the last week of November, 1977 from his album, Born Late. It was his third and final top 10 hit, peaked at number seven for two weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, spending four months on the chart from late 1977 to early 1978. As with Cassidy's prior singles, this song also became a gold record."Hey Deanie" was the second hit written by Carmen for Cassidy, the first being "That's Rock 'n' Roll," from Cassidy's previous album. Both songs charted concurrently with Carmen's own hit, "She Did It". Carmen recorded "Hey Deanie" himself for his 1978 album, Change of Heart, and it was also featured as the B side of the title track's 45 RPM release, which became a Top 20 hit. Carmen wrote the song after seeing the film, Splendor in the Grass, starring Natalie Wood as "Deanie" and Warren Beatty as her lover. As with Cassidy's bigger hits, his version of "Hey Deanie" was featured in one of the episodes of The Hardy Boys, as performed by Cassidy's character Joe Hardy. The episode is entitled "Oh Say Can You Sing" (season 2, episode 14)."Hey Deanie" is ranked as the 68th biggest American hit of 1978. Chicago radio superstation WLS, which gave the song much airplay, ranked "Hey Deanie" as the 45th most popular hit of 1978. It reached as high as number 6 on their survey of January 21, 1978. While not charting nationally in Australia, "Hey Deanie" did reach #21 on station 2NUR in Sydney, Australia.
