“Paradise” is the only single release from Styx’s 1997 live double album Return to Paradise. The song was originally written and recorded by Dennis DeYoung for his musical The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The song was re-recorded by Styx for inclusion as one of three new studio tracks on the live album.
It was released only to radio stations and not commercially, charting at #27 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. It is, to date, the last Styx song to chart on the AC chart.
At the same time, the track “On My Way” was also released to radio stations, but it failed to chart.
