Track :The Yardbirds - Heart Full of Soul Artist :The Yardbirds Album :Having A Rave Up Buy MP3 :"Heart Full of Soul" is a 1965 single by the British Invasion band The Yardbirds. It was written by Graham Gouldman, who later had a lengthy career as a member of 10cc. It charted in the U.S. at #9 and at #2 in the UK.
