"View From a Bridge" is the second single to be released internationally from Kim Wilde's second album, Select.

The song told the story of a girl committing suicide by jumping off a bridge and became another of Wilde's big hits, particularly throughout Europe and Australia (where it was her fourth consecutive Top 10 success).
