"Johnny Wanna Live" is a pop song by German singer Sandra.

The song originally was an album track on Sandra's fourth studio album Paintings in Yellow. It was remixed and released in June 1992 to promote her second greatest hits compilation album 18 Greatest Hits. The song, co-written by Frank Peterson and later redone by his then-girlfriend Sarah Brightman on her album Dive, was an anthem against cruelty to animals. The music video was once again directed by Howard Greenhalgh and showed shocking scenes of cruelty to animals. In an interview in Sweden Sandra explained the origins of the song citing her disapproval of people wearing fur coats. Sandra stated that Johnny represents "every creature's pain."[1]
