Everything But The Girl

Everything But The Girl was a British musical duo, that formed in 1982.
The name came from the slogan of the well-known Hull shop, Turner's Furniture. The store had originally built a window sign, that read, "For your bedroom needs, we sell everything but the girl".

The song "Missing" was released in 1994, featured on the band's eight album Amplified Heart.
It was recorded as a relaxed-sounding guitar-based popular music song that had earned modest broadcasting airplay. Then the duo gave the track to house music producer Todd Terry to remix for nightclubs.
He took it in a really, strong New York house direction, which had a simplicity to it, but  was very infectious.
It reached the top ten around the world, including the US, where it peaked at No. 2 in the Billboard Hot 100.
The release of the remixed version gave an indication of the band's future experimentation with more electronic dance music on subsequent albums.
