"Cold" is a song by the British singer Annie Lennox. It was released as the fourth single from her 1992 album, Diva, and reached no. 26 in the UK.

The single was released as a series of three separate CD singles, titled Cold, Colder and Coldest. Each CD featured the track Cold as well as a collection of live tracks.

It holds the unique distinction of being the first single to chart in the UK Top 40 without being released on 7" vinyl, being released solely on CD.

The song was used in a PBS promotion for the show "Waking the Dead." [1]
