"Heaven" is a power ballad by Canadian rock singer Bryan Adams originally recorded in 1983, co-written by Adams and Jim Vallance. It first appeared on the A Night in Heaven soundtrack album in the same year and was later included on Adams' album Reckless in 1984. It was released as the third single from Reckless and reached number 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in June 1985, over a year and a half after the song first appeared on record. The single was certified Gold in Canada in 1985.
Heavily influenced by Journey's 1983 hit "Faithfully", the song was written while Adams served as the opening act on that band's Frontiers Tour, and features their drummer, Steve Smith. The power-ballad provided to Adams his first number one single and third Top ten hit on the American charts; according to Billboard magazine the song also entered the Top 25 of the most successful singles of 1985 in the U.S.
