“Tears in Heaven” is a ballad written by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings about the pain Clapton felt following the 1991 death of his four-year-old son, Conor, who fell from a 53rd-story window in his mother’s friend’s New York City condominium. By all accounts, the death was simply a tragic accident, and Clapton was distraught for months afterwards.This song is one of Clapton’s most successful, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the U.S.

It was also used as the theme song to the 1991 film “Rush”.
