Easily one of Eric Clapton's most treasured songs or recordings, "Tears in Heaven" was, of course, written following the tragic death of his young son, Conor. Clapton's pain of loss is rendered in a wonderful, artless style. Musically, he utilizes some fine, folk-blues chord changes, with a slight Brazilian feel in the tempo, and it works wonders. The song was written for the film Rush and appears in the soundtrack as a studio version. However, the song is far better-known in its live acoustic version from his phenomenally successful Unplugged album, which won him a Grammy award.
