Critical reception

Dave Sholin from the Gavin Report wrote about the song: "There aren't many singers on the planet who can outdo Maria's remarkable vocal range. It was her voice that first endeared me to her band Lone Justice. Now as a soloist, she puts all that special ability to the test on the heart-stopping love theme from the Tom Cruise film, "Days Of Thunder." A couple of listens won me over."[1]

Chart performance

"Show Me Heaven" spent four weeks at number one on the UK Singles Chart,[2] and is McKee's only UK number-one as a performer (although the song "A Good Heart"—written by her—was a UK number-one for Feargal Sharkey in November 1985). "Show Me Heaven" had even greater success in Norway, topping the singles chart for 10 weeks. The track was also a number-one success in the Netherlands.[3]

"Show Me Heaven" failed to enter the US Billboard Hot 100, but did reach number 28 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.[4]
