"Wherever You Will Go" is a song by The Calling released on the first single of their debut album Camino Palmero. It still remains their most renowned and their most successful hit, peaking at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topping the Adult Top 40 for 23 weeks, setting a record for that chart behind Santana's hit song "Smooth".

Uses in media

The song was heavily used in preview promos for Star Trek: Enterprise in 2001, leading many to believe that it would be used for the show's theme song, and The American Embassy.

The song is played over the final scene of the second episode of Smallville titled "Metamorphosis".

The song also appears in the film and on the soundtrack album Love Actually. It plays in the background of the scene in which Colin Frissell (played by Kris Marshall) walks into the bar in Milwaukee and meets the two roommates.

The song is also performed by the band in the background of the club scene in Coyote Ugly.

In an episode of the CBS television drama Cold Case, "Frank's Best", the song is played at the end of the episode.

Music video

There were two videos shot for this song. The first was set in Mexicomarker. The other, more well known, version relocates the band at the Los Angeles River, where they perform while a teenage soap opera plays in the foreground. A teenage girl gets her boyfriend's name tattooed on her shoulder, but when she finds him cheating with another girl, she flies into a rage. At the end of the video, she is seen with a new boyfriend (Drew Fuller) and a new tattoo, as her jealous ex looks on from his car.
