Emotion is the twenty-third studio album released by Barbra Streisand. It was released in October 1984 and went platinum in the United States on December 18 the same year.This album was recorded in eleven L.A. and two N.Y. studios and a multitude of producers and writers. It still manages to uphold the Streisand legacy. There's a nice blend of ballads, dance numbers, and rockers throughout. The title track is an upbeat number with The Pointer Sisters on background vocals. "Make No Mistake, He's Mine" is a duet with Kim Carnes with lush cello and piano sounds.Produced by Jim Steinman, "Left in the Dark" clocks in at over seven minutes and features Roy Bittan on piano and Max Weinberg on drums. Another ballad is "Heart Don't Change My Mind," written by Diane Warren. "You're a Step in the Right Direction", with lyrics by Streisand and music by John Mellencamp, is a fast, rocking tune. The album concludes with "Here We Are At Last", a beautiful love song.
