Hollywood-born Belinda Carlisle, the daughter of a vacuum cleaner salesman, first achieved fame in the Go-Go's, one of the world's most successful girlbands who sold more than eight million albums in just three years. Our number one from 29 years ago this week is from Carlisle's hugely successful solo career which continues in tandem with Go-Go's tours and occasional recordings. 'Heaven Is A Place On Earth', the lead single from her second studio album, was a number one on many countries, including Ireland, and is now considered Belinda Carlisle's signature tune. Some notable stars lend a hand on the track, including Michelle Phillips of The Mamas & The Papas on backing vocals, and Thomas Dolby on keyboards.
