Fiction Factory: “(Feels Like) Heaven” (1984)

“(Feels like) Heaven” was Scottish band Fiction Factory’s classic contribution to 80’s new wave, but it never actually charted in America–which is why you may have missed it. It was Top 10 in England, however, and was featured in a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups TV commercial. The band never followed up with another hit and became one of the many new wave one-hit (or no-hit) wonders.

I’ve always thought it was just bad business to start a song title with parenthetical words…wonder if that’s part of the reason this song wasn’t more successful.
