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 as well as with an unplugged version at 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.

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.
