"I Wanna Be Adored" was the third single from The Stone Roses. It was released in the UK, U.S., Germany, Japan, and Canada. The US edition was released at the same time as "Fools Gold" in 1989 and charted at #18 on the Billboard Modern Rock Charts in 1990 .
"I Wanna Be Adored" was the atmospheric opener to The Stone Roses self-titled debut. The song is propelled by Mani's recognisable bass line, John Squire's droning guitars and Ian Brown's hushed ominous vocals, repeating only a few lines of lyrics throughout the entire song. .
