"Stranded" is a song recorded by American rock band Heart. It was released as the third single from the band's tenth studio album Brigade. It is a mid-tempo power ballad that features Heart's guitarist Nancy Wilson picking up lead vocals. Nancy also performed lead vocals on two previous Heart hits: "There's The Girl" and "These Dreams".

The track climbed to #13 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1990, but was not a big success in the UK Singles Chart, where it stalled at #60. It went to #1 in Canada, according to The Record.[1]

The 12" and CD single formats featured the non-LP track "I'll Never Stop Loving You", whilst exclusivley in the UK there were two limited editions of the 12" single: the first came in a gatefold sleeve, whilst the second was issued as a 12" picture disc.
