“Missing You” is a song co-written and recorded by English musician John Waite. It was released in June 1984 as the lead single from the album No Brakes. It peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 during the week of 22 September 1984, and number nine on the UK Singles Chart.

Original MTV personality Nina Blackwood said in the book VJ: The Unplugged Adventures of MTV’s First Wave that Waite had written the song about her. She later told the Tampa Bay Times that Waite confirmed this to her after the book’s publication.
