"Wish I Was" is a 1983 single by British singer Sandie Shaw. Shaw was most famous for being the most successful British female singer of the 1960s, thanks to a string of hit singles on the Pye Records label. She had semi-retired in 1972 and had released very little work for the following ten years until she recorded "Anyone Who Had a Heart" for the B.E.F.'s "Music Of Quality And Distinction" album. Shaw was by now romantically involved with Nik Powell, co-founder of the Virgin Group and Palace Entertainment, who she would later marry. Her involvement with Powell had led her to become involved with the B.E.F.'s album, and the following year she released an album entitled Choose Life in support of the World Peace Exposition. Around 1,000 copies of the album were released as promotional copies only but demand from fans led to an official release on the Palace label.
