"Do You See the Light (Looking For)" is a song recorded by the German band Snap!.

History[edit]

The original version of the song "See the Light" features vocals by Thea Austin, a rap by Turbo B, and can be found on the 1992 Snap! album The Madman's Return. Female vocals of this version of the song are often mistakenly reported to be by Penny Ford, a previous vocalist for Snap! Remixes of "See the Light" were included on Snap!'s 1992 release "Rhythm Is a Dancer", which also feature vocals by Thea Austin.

"Do You See the Light (Looking For)" is essentially a remix of "See the Light" with new lyrics written for the new front-woman Niki Haris, released in June 1993.

"Do You See the Light (Snap! vs Plaything)", another remix, was released in August 2002.
