Tina Turner - Missing You - Single

Missing You was originally a hit single from John Wait in 1984. Tina covered it for her Wildest Dreams album and released it as a single in 1996. In contrast to Europe, it was the lead single in America. The b-side tracks „The Difference Between Us“ and „Do Something“ were previously unreleased. The music video, produced by Peter Lindberg, was also used for a Hanes tv commercial, the sponsor of her Wildest Dreams Tour in America. A special unplugged version was performed from Tina in the tv show 60 Minutes in 1996.

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.
