The Hit List, released with the subtitle The Best of 35 Years, is a compilation album by English singer Cliff Richard. Released in October 1994, the album reached number 3 in the UK Albums Chart and was certified platinum in the UK.[1][2] The album celebrates Richard's 35th anniversary in the music industry and compiled all of Richard's top 5 UK hit singles, which coincidentally totalled 35 at the time. Two bonus tracks were also chosen by Richard for the album – "Miss You Nights", at the request of fans for a re-release, and "Green Light" a favourite of Richard's.[3]

Partially in support of the album, the double A-side single "All I Have to Do Is Dream" / "Miss You Nights" was released in late November. Although "All I Have to Do Is Dream" (a live recording with Phil Everly) was not included on the album, "Miss You Nights" was. The single reached number 14 on the UK Singles Chart.[1]
