"Did Ya" is a song by the British rock band The Kinks, appearing on the EP of the same name, as well as some editions of Phobia.


"Did Ya" first saw release in 1991, in numerous different formats (all of which were the first that The Kinks released on Columbia Records.) In America, the song was the title track of a five song EP. This five track EP was instead made into a CD maxi-single in Europe. Instead of this five song lineup, however, the song was released as a single in the Netherlands, backed with a rerecording of The Kinks' 1968 hit, "Days". The song, however, was unsuccessful. It has also appeared on the Japanese, British, and European versions of Phobia, released in 1993.

The song also appeared on the compilation album Waterloo Sunset: The Best of The Kinks and Ray Davies.
