''It's an amazing song. And it's really as simple, but it's kind of like open the zipper to your soul. I'm kind of a drama queen and that song was perfect for a drama queen, it's so theatrical.'' - Ann Wilson
''Heart was looking for a power ballad and Tom said, 'What about 'Alone'?' I winced and said, 'Oh, I don't really want to look at that song.' He said, 'What do you mean? That's perfect.' Tom changed the melody and gave it much more movement and almost a slightly R&B feel on the first line of the chorus. That really lifted the chorus, and then all of the sudden I liked the song again. I'm really happy with that song, proud of it.'' - Billy Steinberg (songwriter)
''It still works live today. It doesn't matter if it's acoustic or it's the big 80s, this song calls the shot'' - Ann Wilson
