About the Song
"Missing You" is a song by British musician John Waite and was included in the album No Brakes. The song was a classic in the 80's. It peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for one week on September 22, 1984, and 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. This song was also recorded by Tina Turner in 1996, and was released as the third single from the album Wildest Dreams. Interestingly, when Waite's original version of "Missing You" topped Billboard's Hot 100 in late 1984, the song that it knocked out of the top spot was none other than Tina Turner's.    Download this sheet!

Music sheets - what is all about? Back in the 19th century, songs in the United States were popularized by musicians through music sheets.
