That Three Men and a Baby was filmed on a soundstage in Toronto dissuades very few from believing some scenes were shot in a New York City apartment haunted by a dead child and that his image was captured in a few frames of the film. Someone must be responsible when a child dies in a senseless accident, so legend has recast a grieving Eric Clapton as a neglectful father at least partially responsible for the death of his son, a failing he now desperately seeks to expiate through his music. This nearly disastrous event didn't occur in Algeria or any other real-world location.

An innocuous photo of President Obama vacationing with actor George Clooney stirred up questions within the conspiracy community. Fact Check Entertainment. Misinformation is a real threat. Learn How.

Eric Clapton - Tears In Heaven Lyrics | MetroLyrics
Add your thoughts Comments. General Comment Before my sister died of aids, she would sit in her room and play this song over and over. She wanted us to know that she would wait for us and know us when we got to the other side. No Replies Log in to reply. There was an error. General Comment On 20 March at AM, Clapton's son Conor, who was four and a half, died when he fell from the 53rd-story window of his mother's New York City apartment, landing on the roof of an adjacent four-story building.
Clapton's grief was expressed in the song "Tears in Heaven" on the soundtrack to the movie Rush , co-written with Will Jennings, which, like the MTV Unplugged album that followed it, won a Grammy award. General Comment I know why Eric Clapton wrote this song. Songs are like poems and the listener also has meaning in the words.
With that said here is my meaning. My husband killed himself. In my grief and guilt over his death I tried to kill myself as well. I know my husband is in heaven and the questions of whether he would even know me if I got to heaven was on my mind.
I survived my attempt an now realize that even though I still grieve I do not belong in heaven right now. I wish I had listened to this song before my attempt but now I listen to remind myself.
If anyone has ever experienced a tragic death of a loved one there is always that desire to go to heaven with them. When t is finally my time to go I think he will be there even if it is another 30 or 40 years from now.
