"Constant Craving" peaked at #38 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also reached #2 on the Billboard adult contemporary chart. In the UK, the song was initially a modest hit when released in 1992, but after being re-released in 1993 in the wake of its American success, it peaked at #15 on the UK Singles Chart in its fourth week.
The music video was filmed in black-and-white. It presents a fanciful recreation of the premiere of Samuel Beckett's play Waiting for Godot in Paris, 1953. Here, she is depicted singing backstage while the actors perform. The director, Mark Romanek, says the song's lyrics of desperation and waiting fit well with the themes of Beckett's play. The video won the award for Best Female Video at the 1993 MTV Video Music Awards much to lang's surprise.
