Paradise Is Here is a wonderful ballad, written by Paul Brady and the last single from the album Break Every Rule in Europe. Tina used the song as the encore on her Break Every Rule Tour, available on the Live In Europe album from 1988 and the Rio '88 home video. The b-side track „In The Midnight Hour“ was previously unreleased, taken from the Break Every Rule home video. As a special tour souvenir, the single contains a poster sleeve and the maxi a gatefold cover with pictures from the tour. The UK promo single contains on the a-side an unreleased radio edit and on the b-side the song „In The Midnight Hour“ with an previously unreleased intro from Tina.
The music video, directed by Andy Morahan, was recorded live during the Break Every Rule Tour in Dortmund, Germany. The version in the video is slightly shorter than the mix released on the 12“ maxi single. The clip was first released on home video in 2004 on the All The Best video collection.
Released in September 1987 in Europe from Capitol / EMI Records on 7“ (poster) & 12“ (gatefold) vinyl, Paradise Is Here reached #31 in Germany. The single was not released in America.
