Note: Something Happened On The Way To Heaven was originally written for the Danny Devito movie The War Of The Roses starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito, this song was meant to feature at the end (during the chandelier section) but director Danny Devito changed his mind an old standard was used instead, a shame because this song fits that section of the film well.
Further notes: There was a music video of this song featuring pippin the dog who dreams alot and enters the Phil Collins tour rehearsals. pippin also dreams that he saves a damsel in distress…. pippin is seen to urinate and defecate as dogs naturally do!
