Missing You was originally a hit single from John Wait in 1984. Tina covered it for her Wildest Dreams album and released it as the second single in America and the fouth one in Europe. The music video, produced by Peter Lindberg, was also used for a Hanes tv commercial, the sponsor of the American leg of Tina’s Wildest Dreams Tour. A special unplugged version was performed from Tina in the tv show „60 Minutes“ in 1996.

Released July 1996 in England on the Parlophone label and August 1996 in Germany (Parlophone) and America on the Virgin label on 7“ vinyl (promo), cassette and 5“ CD, Missing You reached #12 in England, #66 in Germany and #84 in America. It was also a #18 airplay hit in Europe.

La Tina previews her fab new collection, "Wildest Dreams," with a lushly arranged rendition of John Waite’s mid-80s pop hit. Under the shrewd guidance of mega-producer Trevor Horn, Turner’s distinctive growl is pushed to deliciously dramatic heights and is matched by countless layers of synths and a crisp rock backbeat. The combined attention of the singer’s loyalists and those who simply never get enough of this timeless tune should make this cover an instant (and most deserving) winner at top 40 and AC.
