"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 rhythm guitarist Nancy Wilson picking up lead vocals instead of the usual lead singer, her sister Ann. 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, UK Singles Chart, #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 exclusively 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.
