"From Here to Eternity" is the second single from the Iron Maiden album Fear of the Dark, released in 1992. The song is the fourth and most recent song in the ongoing saga of "Charlotte the Harlot" (other songs include "Charlotte the Harlot," "22 Acacia Avenue," and "Hooks in You", although the status of the last song is a point of debate among fans since it doesn't actually mention "Charlotte", just "the keys to a view at number 22"). The songs tells the tale of Charlotte going on a fateful motorcycle ride with the Devil.

This is the first studio single to not feature Eddie in the artwork - second overall, after the live version of "Running Free" - using a picture of the song's music video instead.

The single was released in several formats: a 7" cut to shape picture disc with Budgie's "I Can't See My Feelings" on the B-side, a 7" etched disc with "From Here to Eternity" and "Roll Over Vic Vella" on one side and an image etched into the other, a 12" single with fold-out sleeve with "Roll Over Vic Vella" and a live version of "No Prayer For The Dying" as b-sides, and several cd-single versions with all previously mentioned songs and a live version of "Public Enema Number One". It charted and peaked at #21 on the UK Singles Chart.

The cover of Chuck Berry's "Roll Over Beethoven" features spoken intro and outro pieces by longtime Iron Maiden roadie and friend Vic Vella.
