"High" is the second pop single written by British duo Lighthouse Family for their second album Postcards from Heaven (1997). The song was produced by Mike Peden. It was released in January 1998 and reached No. 1 in Australia as well as being in the top 10 in Switzerland, Austria, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, New Zealand and Europe. "High" is the most successful single released by the Lighthouse Family so far, having reached the top 10 in many countries.

Music video[edit]

The video clip is in black and white, except when Tunde Baiyewu begins to sing. There are scenes of Paul Tucker getting off the train at Newcastle upon Tyne and exiting the city's Central Station. There are also scenes of Tunde singing in an autumn park and the Tynemouth beach, standing outside the Cruddas Park (now Riverside Dene) flats in Elswick, a girl lying and rolling on the grass while playing with flowers, and an abandoned house near Dungeness.

Filmed in North East England and Kent, the video shows some prominent local landmarks: the Tyne Bridge is shown at the very start along with the Quayside, and a number of shots of Baiyewu take place on the Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge, Port Clarence and Haverton Hill, which is also the backdrop for the single covers.
