Missing You (3:30)

Cover of No Brakes

From No Brakes and 265 other releases

“Missing You” is the title of a song co-written and recorded by British musician John Waite (other writers were Mark Leonard and Chas Sandford). It was released in June 1984 as the lead single from the album No Brakes. It peaked at #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 during the week of September 22, 1984, and reached number nine on the UK Singles Chart.

John Waite re-recorded the song with country/bluegrass artist Alison Krauss which appeared on her album A Hundred Miles or More: A Collection, and released it to country music radio in 2007. The re-recording peaked at #34 on the Hot Country Songs chart. It was also featured in the popular ’80s inspired video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and in an ad campaign for Conan O’Brien’s return to late night TV on TBS.

The opening line is sometimes misheard as “Everyime I hear your name, I always catch my breasts”.
