Heaven, the ultimate utopia in the thoughts of many cultures.
Is heaven just for the spirits in the sky, or is it a possibility and a place on earth (as Belinda Carlisle once put it)?
Could this be heaven for everyone, as Queen once theorized?
And what about a spiritual heaven, is it a place of deep introspection and connection to Godhead, or is it such a garden of delights that heaven's on
fire, as Kiss provocatively ear-wormed?
Perhaps it's a place where we see our deceased loved once again, as Eric Clapton suggested.
Any songs mentioning, describing or strongly alluding to heaven are welcome, whether you call it "heaven", the "happy hunting grounds", Valhalla,
Goloka, Nirvana or whatever cultural reference.
But before I brainstorm too many ideas (and all those are still welcome, if it's one of your favorites), here's a less well-known song to get the
stairway of spiritual or material understanding rolling.
Michael Sweet (from Stryper fame): All this and Heaven too.

One of my favorite songs. It is called Love... but if you actually listen to the lyrics, he is talking to the Lord. Replaced Lord with Love.
Apparently the music execs thought Love would be more marketable...
I found it in gym with my bros today.
Just some rounds for the muscle ache, and then it's the sleep of blissful exhaustion.
A kind of exhaustion where you can't even worry and stress any more, you're so excellently finished.

Funny you should bring this up today, yesterday I was driving and heard this song for the first time and was really moved by it, it brought up some
really nice memories of a girl I knew and the song lyrics pretty much described our situation exactly.
Also it's a well written, catchy tune and the vocals are pretty much perfect.
Definitely not referring to the Christian version of heaven though!.
Anyway when I got home I looked up who sang it and was really surprised to find it is sung by Bruno Mars, someone who(until now) I had found really
tedious and pretentious. I guess even the worst bands can have one good song in them(apologies to any fans of Bruno! Lol).
