Hearts and Bones is the sixth solo studio album by Paul Simon. It was released in 1983. The album was originally intended to be called Think Too Much, but Mo Ostin, president of Warner Bros. Records, persuaded Simon to change it to Hearts and Bones. The album was written and recorded following Simon & Garfunkel's The Concert in Central Park in 1981, and the world tour of 1982-1983.

Paul Simon and Carrie Fisher. Hearts And Bones started its life on a yellow notepad as Into the Liquid Unknown. Simon toyed with different variations of the opening line, including Two Wanderings Jews and Almost Two Wanderings Jews, until he reached just the right amount of One and One Half. Simon found it humorous, but it is also true, Fisher being half Jewish. In the Cinemax TV special Album Flash on Hearts and Bones that aired on January 10th 1984, Simon said: I try in the first line of a song to say something that is true. Not an emotional truth but a fact. The polarity between great songs such as Hearts and Bones and the lesser songs on the album did not escape Simon. In an interview with Paul Zollo, included in the recommended book Songwriters on Songwriting, Simon said: Thats one of my best songs. It took a long time to write it and its very true.

Paul Simon is Jewish, Carrie is half Jewish, hence the line, "One and a half wandering Jews. When asked if he made a conscious effort to put religious overtones in the song, Simon replied: "No, it wasn't conscious. In fact, I thought it was actually funny. For the Hearts And Bones album, Simon took a different approach to his songwriting. The imagery started to get a little interesting.

One of Paul Simon's most accomplished albums, Hearts & Bones is also among his least appreciated, a commercial disappointment at the time of its release due more to Simon's darker themes than to any discernible decline in his powers as a songwriter or instincts as a producer  . I don’t know what Paul Simon was thinking when he decided to include on an album two versions of one song. There are A and B versions of Think Too Much, similar only in title and concept. The better one is the one that should be here.
