Ti Voglio Qui 1997 single by Tina Arena

"Ti Voglio Qui" is the second single by Australian pop singer Tina Arena from her 1997 album In Deep and the Italian version of its hit lead single Burn. As an alternate language version of a hit single, this release lacked substantial mainstream appeal and therefore failed to make any significant commercial or chart impact unlike its highly successful English counterpart. Despite being released at the same time, the two songs are often credited as the first and second singles from the In Deep album. It is credited as a single released from this album due to its connection to "Burn" and the two songs' simultaneous releases, despite being a non-album track. This quickly made its limited CD Single a highly sought-after collector's item, as it was the only way to obtain this song until it was re-released on the limited edition 2CD version of the Greatest Hits 1994-2004 album. The song can still be purchased from a number of Australian legal music download services. A Spanish version of "Burn" was also recorded and released as a bonus track on the versions of the In Deep album released in a number of South American countries.
