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 â€˜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 â€“ or indeed to comment on her sexual preferences.
