In 1985, who took the song "Heaven" to number one in the US charts?
Bryan Guy Adams (born 5 November 1959) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, record producer, guitarist, photographer, philanthropist and activist. He rose to fame in Canada and the United States with his 1983 album "Cuts Like a Knife" and turned into a global star with his 1984 album "Reckless", which produced some of his best known songs, including "Run to You", "Summer of '69" and his first number one, "Heaven".
"Heaven" is a song by the Canadian singer and songwriter Bryan Adams recorded in 1983, written by Adams and Jim Vallance. It first appeared on the "A Night in Heaven" soundtrack album 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 one 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. It provided Adams with his first number one single and third top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The track placed number 24 on Billboard magazine's Top Pop Singles of 1985.
