Missing You was originally a hit single from John Wait in 1984, who also wrote the song. Tina covered it for her Wildest Dreams album and released it as the first single in America and the third one in Europe. She promoted the song at the tv show „National Lottery“ in England and as an unplugged version in the American tv show „60 Minutes“ and performed it also live at her Wildest Dreams Tour. A live version is available on the Live In Amsterdam home video from 1997.  

The black & white music video was produced by the famous German photographer Peter Lindberg at a rainy set in Los Angeles. It was also used for a Hanes Hosiery advertising commercial, the sponsor of the American leg of Tina’s Wildest Dreams Tour. It shows a very elegant and youthful looking Tina, dancing in the streets and surrounded by some male models half her age. The clip was never officially released on home video, but is available on the DVD sampler „Super Hits“ from Kinky Records.

Released in July 1996 in England and in August 1996 in Germany from Parlophone Records and also in August in America from Virgin Records 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.

Billboard Magazine  - August 03, 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.
