"Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker)" is the fourth track on The Rolling Stones' 1973 album Goats Head Soup.

Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, "Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker)"'s lyrics relate two stories: one based on the true story of New York City police shooting a boy because they mistook him for a bank robber,[citation needed] and the second of a ten-year-old girl who dies in an alley of a drug overdose.

After telling the story of the police shooting the wrong person, Jagger sings,

You heartbreaker, with your .44, I want to tear your world apart.

The .44 magnum cartridge had been recently made famous by the 1971 movie Dirty Harry, in which Harry Callahan uses "the most powerful handgun in the world" to cleanse the streets of crime. The lyrics complement the music, which Rolling Stone magazine described as "urban R&B", due to its funk influence and prominent clavinet part (played by Billy Preston).[1]

"Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker)" was first recorded in November and December 1972 before being re-recorded early the following summer. Jim Pricearranged the song's horns and played sax, while Chuck Findley took over for Price on trumpet. Mick Taylor played the lead guitar part (which features use of a wah-wah pedal, and a Leslie speaker), Richards played bass; Billy Preston plays Clavinet (also using a wah-wah), and RMI Electra Piano.[2] Released as the second single from Goats Head Soup in the U.S. only (after the #1 hit "Angie"), it reached number 15 in the U.S. on the Billboard Hot 100 and has remained a staple on AOR and classic rock radio stations.

The song also appeared on the American version of the compilation album Rewind (1971-1984). It also was featured in the series finale of the CBS dramaCold Case.
