Single's in line for ecstasy (8)


I believe the answer is:


'ecstasy' is the definition.

'single's in line' is the wordplay.
'single's' becomes 'I's' (one).
'in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'line' becomes 'parade' (eg a parade of shops).
'is' inserted into 'parade' is 'PARADISE'.

'for' is the link.

(Other definitions for paradise that I've seen before include "Idyllic place" , "Elysian fields" , "Poem by 1" , "What was lost to the poet" , "blissful place?" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
