Great Musicians: Maria McKee

You may know Maria McKee. She did that soundtrack for Days of Thunder. It was called Show Me Heaven and was at No. 1 in the UK for a month. Her 1990 Top of the Pops performance, now very difficult to find online, brought back happy memories of Kate Bush’s Wuthering Heights. And that time was a lot longer ago than it should be. 1990. Tom Cruise wasn’t a religious whacko, he was just a very famous Hollywood actor. His appearance in the Show Me Heaven video can only have helped promote the song in an MTV world.
