"Stay" is a million plus selling 1992 single from British-based pop/rock/synth act Shakespears Sister. It was the second single release from their second album Hormonally Yours and is the duo's biggest hit. It topped the charts in various countries in 1992, including a six-week stint (on four separate occasions) in Shakespears Sister member Siobhan Fahey's birth place, Ireland. "Stay" reached No. 4 in the United States; one of the few British acts to dent the US Top 5 stateside in 1992. "Stay" was also the biggest-selling single by a British act in the UK in 1992. It is one of the longest running UK number ones in UK chart history (8 weeks), and the longest by an all-female group or duo. Top 10 success was emulated in the majority of the countries where it was released. The song is regarded as a classic and iconic track.

To prove its longevity, in early November 2010, "Stay" re-entered the charts in the UK, Ireland and the European Hot 100 Singles. A Halloween eve performance of the track by The X Factor contestant Cher Lloyd exposed "Stay" to a new audience who downloaded it. The track re-entered the UK Singles Chart at no.12 and no.10 on the Irish Chart.

This single was the only Shakespears Sister song that featured Siobhan Fahey less prominently on vocals than Marcella Detroit, with Detroit singing the verses and lead chorus and Fahey singing the song's dramatic bridge. Detroit is noted for singing in whistle register before the last chorus of the song, going up to a high F (F6).
