“Wherever Would I Be” is a song by American rock band Cheap Trick, released in 1990 as the second single from their eleventh studio album Busted. It was written by American songwriter Diane Warren and produced by Richie Zito. “Wherever Would I Be” peaked at No. 50 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
A music video was filmed to promote the single. It achieved medium rotation on MTV and play on The Jukebox Network and Hit Video USA.
In 1995, British pop singer Dusty Springfield and American rock/soul singer Daryl Hall recorded a duet version of the track. Added to Springfield’s album A Very Fine Love, the song was the second-to-last single from Springfield. Due to modest sales of the album, Springfield and Columbia Records decided not to renew her contract, and because her breast cancer recurred in late 1996, and Springfield died in 1999, “A Very Fine Love” proved to be her final album.
The version was used in the 1995 movie “While You Were Sleeping”, starring Sandra Bullock and Bill Pullman. The song was also released as a single in mid-1995, peaking at #44 in the UK for a total of three weeks.
A Very Fine Love is the fifteenth studio album recorded by singer Dusty Springfield, and thirteenth released. Recorded in 1994 with producer Tom Shapiro and released in 1995, it was a Columbia Records release in both the US and UK, and Springfield’s first such simultaneous release since Living Without Your Love in 1979.
