"Take Me to Your Heaven" was the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 1999 performed in English (taking advantage of new rules removing the requirement to perform in a national language) by Charlotte Nilsson representing Sweden. Charlotte Nilsson first won the Swedish Melodifestivalen 1999 when singing the Swedish language version "Tusen och en natt" (Swedish for "One Thousand and One Nights").
The song was internationally released as a single on 21 June 1999, produced by Mikael Wendt. At the singles charts, it peaked at number 2 in Sweden, number 5 in Flemish Belgium, number 10 in Norway, number 20 in the United Kingdom, and number 23 in the Netherlands.
On 24 April 1999, the Swedish language version of the song entered radio chart Svensktoppen as number-one and spent 8 consecutive weeks on the top spot, remaining on the chart until 4 September 1999. The song was succeeded in 2000 as Contest winner by the Olsen Brothers representing Denmark with "Fly on the Wings of Love".
The song is an up-beat song about love, with the singer asking her lover to take her to heaven by loving her. Some fans have argued that it is derivative of previous Swedish 1974 winner ABBA. The music video is set in the wintertime with Charlotte walking in the snow.
