"Tears in Heaven" is a ballad written by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings about the pain Clapton felt following the death of his four-year-old son, Conor, who fell from a window of the 53rd-floor New York apartment of his mother's friend, on March 20, 1991. Clapton, who arrived at the apartment shortly after the accident, was visibly 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. The song also spent three weeks at #1 on the American adult contemporary chart in 1992.
A new song by The Velvet Sun, band from Kiev, is about the war between Russia and Ukraine.
"It is always difficult to write about the war or revolution, but The Velvet Sun have done it calmly, sensibly, wisely and reasonably. They are singing about the events that have been happening in Ukraine, without pathos."

"This song is a cool rage. A quiet revolt."
Vlad Fisun, Big Fisun Show, Radio Aristocrats
"It's rather hard to play music about war and revolution, but we as musicians have passed through these events, receiving some kind of fireproof experience."
Pavlo Gvozdetsky, pianist/organist, The Velvet Sun
