Warrant - Heaven w/Lyrics

This one is definitely for the ladies. This power ballad was Warrant's biggest hit. Their frontman Jani Lane was also their primary songwriter, and in this track, he sings about how heaven is right here on Earth as long as he's with the girl he loves. "Heaven" spent two weeks at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1989. Warrant took a lot of crap for this song from folks who felt it was too limp for a rock band. Much of the criticism came from other West Coast bands that seemed to resent their success.

You'll never guess what band was holding "Heaven" back from making it to #1... that would be the lip syncing duo  Milli Vanilli, who was clinging to the top spot throughout 1989 with hits like "Blame It On The Rain."
