Friday, 6th February 2015

Heaven Is 1993.

Def Leppard's classic single Heaven Is hit Number 13 in the UK singles chart 22 years ago on this day in 1993.

The fourth UK single from the 'Adrenalize' album entered the chart at Number 19 and moved up to its peak of 13 on this day.

It would spend a further week in the Top 40 at 29 before falling off the chart.

The single was released on 18th January 1993 and spent a total of 5 weeks on the chart.

It was the fourth of four Top 20 singles from the album in the UK.

Heaven Is - CD Single Sleeve Quote

"In your hands, you have the 4th Def track from Adrenalize: 'Heaven Is' - another view about that age old problem of perfect women. Backing this track is another from the obscure Elliott collection of songs: 'She's Too Tough'. The title speaks for itself!"

"We've thrown in 2 more live tracks: Our version of the Alice Cooper (we are not worthy) song 'Elected', recorded with Steve in Tilburg, Holland in 1987 and 'Let's Get Rocked' from our May '92 European tour - city of Bonn, Germany to be precise. The difference in the feel of the two tracks seems greater than the 5 year difference in recording, but, what the heck..."

Joe Elliott - Vault Inner Sleeve Quote

"Purely a pop song. Us sounding like the Beachboys. Hate the video."
