Wow. I’m surprised I never heard this Bonnie Tyler track. Maybe I did and just thought it was Bon Jovi‘s “You Give Love a Bad Name”. The great thing about this one is they were both released in 1986 and both of them were actually written by hit making machine Desmond Child. Not only did Child write nearly identical choruses, both tracks start out with a cappella versions of the chorus. In addition, the verses share a very similar walking bass/guitar line. I guess Child can’t sue himself!

I can’t believe the similarities between these songs!! That’s just crazy!
Desmond, pay attention next time… but the song by Belinda Carlisle Heaven is a place on Heart is similar but not written by Desmond Child…
Good call on Belinda Carlisle
Ankie Bagger….where were you last night
NOT written by Desmond(least i dont think so)
theres no denying the similarity with that one
released 1989 i believe
What??!!! Wow. I’ll be sure to add Ankie Bagger!
Heaven is a place on earth is what i thought was the similar song when i was listening to the bonnie tylersong
although “heaven is a place on earth” was released 1 year AFTER these 2.
