18 Greatest Hits is the second greatest hits compilation album by German singer Sandra, released in 1992.[1]

This greatest hits was released in the fall of 1992. Sandra recorded a new version of the song "Johnny Wanna Live", previously released on the Paintings in Yellow album. The song, co-written by Frank Peterson and later redone by his then-girlfriend Sarah Brightman for her album Dive, was an anthem against cruelty to animals. The music video was once again directed by Howard Greenhalgh and showed shocking scenes of cruelty towards animals. In an interview in Sweden, Sandra explained the origins of the song citing her disapproval of people wearing fur coats. The greatest hits reached the Top 10 in both Germany and France and was awarded gold. The release of 18 Greatest Hits marked the end of Sandra's most successful period of her solo career. This greatest hits was re-released in 2003 under the title The Essential. This version was repackaged differently and also has different artwork.
