MISSING (I MISS YOU LIKE THE DESERTS MISS THE RAIN)-NO MERCY



No Mercy released their debut single entitled Missing, a cover of Everything but the Girl´s "Missing", in September 1995.

Their first single was a Latin-flavoured but otherwise very similar cover of Everything But the Girl's "Missing (I Miss You Like the Deserts Miss the Rain)" which had been a huge underground hit on Ibiza in the summer but had not yet broken through commercially. No Mercy's version gave the boys a number 19 hit in Germany and a number 9 hit in Switzerland before Everything but the Girl's original version finally took off and raised up the charts.

A sheer fantastic song. The real credits go to Everything But the Girl of course but this Frank Farian-produced Latin version is really superior. A wonderful recording.

This video launched No Mercy to the top of the charts and became an instant classic. Also shot in South Beach Miami Florida.

"Missing" is a song written and recorded by British pop music duo Everything but the Girl. The song was released as a single album from the band's 1994 album Amplified Heart. "Missing" is Everything But The Girl's best-known success and it is credited with revitalizing the duo's musical career and changing the team's music to a successful electronic music style.
