Show Me Heaven

Show Me Heaven by Maria McKee was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, September 29, 1990 spending 4 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This was the theme song for the Tom Cruise movie Days Of Thunder, which is about a NASCAR driver. Joshua Rifkin and Eric Rackin wrote this for the film and sent it to Maria McKee, who had moved to Ireland after the failure of her first solo album. She only agreed to record it if she could change the lyrics, turning the song into a more emotive ballad. In The UK, a dance version by Saint featuring Suzanne Dee returned this song to the chart in 2003, peaking at #36.
