"Heaven on the 7th Floor" is a 1977 hit single by British singer Paul Nicholas. It was his greatest hit, a track from his eponymous debut LP. The song spent three weeks at number 6 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. during November and December of that year. "Heaven On The 7th Floor" became a Gold record. It reached number 49 in Canada.

The song was not among Nicholas's most popular hits in Britain, although it was a Top 10 hit in other nations. On the 22 October 1977 American Top 40 radio program, Casey Kasem described Nicholas as "a performer who didn't want to be there," i.e., on the musical charts. Having had a successful film career in Europe for 10 years, he had come to America to audition for a stage production of Hamlet, however, he was not selected. Nicholas felt that musical success might help him make more of a name for himself, and would open a door for him into bigger acting roles. Kasem said of this strategy, "He makes the music industry sound easier than it really is."

Cover versions

"Heaven on the 7th Floor" was covered by The Mighty Pope, and charted concurrently with Paul Nicholas's version. In Canada, his version was the bigger hit. It was issued by RCA Records on the Private Stock label, and reached #14. It also reached number 83 on the U.S. Cash Box chart.
