....Heaven Is a Place On Earth by Belinda Carlisle. L-O-V-E this song. Belinda was, of course, the lead singer of The Go-Go's and this was the first single off of her second solo album. It was also her only US #1 song with or without The Go-Go's, believe it or not. Heaven Is a Place On Earth was a worldwide hit, reaching the top spot in several countries, and definitely an 80s pop classic. Belinda had continued success and still makes albums and tours to this day. This song, however, is her signature song and enjoys continued airplay and relevance in today's pop landscape. FUN FACT: The video was one of two directed by Diane Keaton. Yes, Annie Hall directed this video. Ha. Anyhoo, HIAPOE took the top spot on the US Hot 100 on December 5th and was there for just one week before being taken over by George Michael's Faith, but it left its mark I'd say. So here is the #1 song from 26 years ago today, Belinda Carlisle with Heaven Is a Place On Earth.
