"Paradise Is Here" is a song written by Paul Brady and available on his 1987 album Primitive Dance. The song was also recorded by Tina Turner, for her album Break Every Rule, and Cher for her twenty-first album It's a Man's World.

Tina Turner version[edit]

Tina Turner's recording of the track was produced by Mark Knopfler of the Dire Straits and included on her 1986 album Break Every Rule. It was released as a single in Europe and found minor success in the UK. Instead of a remix, the 12" single featured a seven-and-a-half-minute live version from Turner's 1986/1987 Break Every Rule Tour on which the track was one of the encores. An alternate and edited live version was later included as the closing track on her 1988 album Tina Live in Europe.

Music video[edit]

The official music video for the song was directed by Andy Morahan.[1]
