Belinda Carlisle "Heaven Is A Place On Earth" 12" Single (1987)
Details: Belinda Carlisle, "Heaven Is A Place On Earth," 3-track 12" remix single, MCA Records (1987). Cover has the tiniest bit of cover wear, otherwise, flawless single/packaging.
Description: "This was the first single from Carlisle's second solo album. After her group The Go-Go's split in 1985, she remained signed to their label, I.R.S., and issued her self-titled debut in 1986. The Go-Go's had some squabbles that led to their breakup, but Carlisle remained close to her bandmate Charlotte Caffey, who worked on those first two solo albums as a songwriter and guitarist. The Go-Go's other guitarist, Jane Wiedlin, had modest success early on with her solo career, but Carlisle had an instant hit with her first single, "Mad About You," and became a superstar when "Heaven Is A Place On Earth" became a global smash, topping the charts in several countries, including the UK, US, and Ireland. It was Carlisle's only UK or US chart-topper with or without The Go-Go's. The big backing vocals on the chorus were sung by Michelle Phillips of The Mamas and The Papas, prolific hit songwriter Diane Warren (worked with Whitney Houston, Cher, Celine Dion), and the song's writers, Ellen Shipley and songwriter Rick Nowels. Warren wrote two tracks on the album: "World Without You" and "I Get Weak."
