"Heaven in Your Eyes" was a single released in 1986 by the Canadian rock band Loverboy, for the Top Gun soundtrack. It later appeared on Loverboy's 1989 hits compilation Big Ones. The power ballad reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in the U.S.

The song was originally written by Mae Moore and John Dexter, both Vancouver-area musicians.[1] As recorded, it is credited to Moore, Dexter and Paul Dean & Mike Reno from Loverboy.

Noteworthy is the fact that Loverboy keyboardist Doug Johnson does not appear in the song's music video. His absence was intentional, as he felt that the Top Gun film over-glamorized war and military service.[citation needed]
