Belinda Carlisle’s 1987 hit single, Heaven is a Place on Earth, was a clear-cut winner, wowing danceable ditty devotees the world over. Yet whilst there can be no doubts concerning the record’s success, where exactly the song’s ‘heaven on earth’ might be found remains elusive, with Ms Carlisle’s frustratingly fuzzy lyrics giving little away in regards to a particular spot or even address:
Oohh baby do you know what that’s worth?â€¨
Oohh, heaven is a place on earth.
That said, somewhat controversially several potential locations have been highlighted in Tokyo, with this previously posted picture becoming a place of pilgrimage of sorts for many enthusiasts. A venue however that has now garnered some stiff competition in the capital’s western suburbs, with a recently opened establishment making a bold claim for the heaven on earth honour.
And whilst the club’s saucy sirens may appear to cast aspersions on the 48-year-old singer-songwriter’s sexuality*, its name leaves little doubt in regards to its declaration.

*As of writing, Ms Carlisle has yet to return a call in reference to confirming a specific location — or indeed to comment on her sexual preferences.
