The Heaven Mix

Again, I must have way too much time on my hands.

I’ve put together yet another playlist of tunes, this time with the theme of “Heaven.” Each of the songs has the word “heaven” in the title. I probably left out dozens of songs, but I included forty-one of them. Why forty-one? Primarily because I didn’t want to drop any of these.

The mix does include the two songs I’ve previously featured this week: “Heavenly” by Webster Lewis featuring D.J. Rogers, and Inner Shade’s “Heaven.” I guess once I was on the “heaven” bandwagon, I just couldn’t get off. I’ll list the songs below in order, and as always, if you can’t play a song, you can search it out.

There is one duplicate song: “If I Ever Lose This Heaven,” done by the Average White Band and Quincy Jones. Their versions begin and end the mix, respectively. Only one artist has more than one song: that would be Stevie Wonder, whose two songs are back to back near the end of the playlist. There are many other duplicate titles, but none of those are the same song. For example, there are eight songs titled “Heaven,” but they are eight different songs.

  3. Ah! what a heavenly list. You’d better pull out the couch – I’m going to be squatting here and make some space for your TWIN too πŸ˜€. I recognise many of my favorites here. One song that I hadn’t heard before which sounds really great is: This must be heaven by Brainstorm.
    Of course you had to stop somewhere so I’ll take the liberty of adding some of my additional favourites:

    1. Well, hello there! Feel free to squat awhile!

      As always, thanks for your choices! I had forgotten about Kem’s “Heaven.” The Jonathan Butler/Maysa combo is lovely of course. And Phil Perry…his amazing voice needs to be on a compilation called Heaven anyway!

      Hope you are having a great day, Chevvy!
