I’ll be sharing one of my favorite Power Ballads, each day on Facebook and on this blog, from now until February 14th. I think of these songs as the Valentine’s Day equivalent of Christmas Carols. I call it A Fortnight From The Heart.
Day 4: “Heaven In Your Eyes” by Loverboy
One of the few Canadian Power Balladists out there, Loverboy first released this song as part of the Top Gun soundtrack, making it one of the more forgettable songs from the movie, despite its emotion-gushing gloriousness (in Loverboy’s defense, Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away” is played about 12 times throughout the movie, so that song kind of overshadows everything, including plot, character development, editing, lighting, etc).
“Heaven In Your Eyes,” though, it’s great! The chorus is easy to sing along with, and the chorus’ guitar riff is satisfyingly simple. Go sing it to someone you love.
