 “Tears In Heaven – Eric Clapton” 

14 May

Tears in Heaven” is a song by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings, from the 1991 Rush film soundtrack. The song was written about the pain and loss Clapton felt following the death of his 4-year-old son, Conor.[2] In an interview with Sue Lawley in 1992, Clapton said of the song, “There is a song that I’ve written for a movie, but in actual fact it was in the back of my head but it didn’t really have a reason for being until I was scoring this movie which I did a little while ago and then it sort of had a reason to be. And it is a little ambiguous because it could be taken to be about Conor but it also is meant to be part of the film.”[3] Conor fell from a window of a 53rd-floor New York apartment owned by his mother’s friend on March 20, 1991. Clapton arrived at the apartment shortly after the accident.[4]
