No matter what your beliefs are, you can't deny that some of the greatest tunes ever written are songs about heaven. Is there anything more inspiring than heaven? Several musicians have written songs about heaven or going to heaven. some heaven songs are even dedicated to people who already passed away. Many of the best songs about heaven talk about meeting up with loved ones in the afterlife.

One of the most iconic rock songs of all time specifically mentions heaven. You guessed it! I'm talking about Led Zeppelin's hit, “Stairway to Heaven.” “Tears in Heaven” by Eric Clapton is a heartbreaking love song for Clapton's son who died at a young age. In this heaven song, Clapton speculates on what it will be like when he is reunited with his boy in heaven.

Rock isn't the only genre with great heaven songs. Brad Paisley's “When I Get Where I'm Going” is a good example of a country tune about heaven. “Tha Crossroads” by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony is one of the top heaven songs from the hip-hop genre.
