"Nearly Lost You" is a 1992 single by grunge band Screaming Trees. Perhaps their best-known song, it was a moderate success on modern rock radio,[2] partly because of its appearance on the soundtrack to the 1992 Cameron Crowe film Singles. In addition to the soundtrack, Nearly Lost You also appeared on the band's 1992 breakthrough album Sweet Oblivion. It also appears on the soundtrack to the 2007 baseball video game The Bigs, and is available as downloadable content for the Rock Band series, and is in the main soundtrack of Guitar Hero 5. The song was covered in 2013 by Rogue Wave.
