"Never Enough" is a song by British alternative rock group The Cure, featured on their 1990 album Mixed Up. Unlike most other Cure songs of this era, the song was unexpectedly guitar-oriented, featuring no synthesizers. Upon release as a single, "Never Enough" topped the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart for three weeks. On the album, it is subtitled "Big Mix".

Although Perry Bamonte is on the single cover and appears in the music video, he does not have a songwriting credit (as do the other four members) nor does he play on the track.

The song was re-recorded using acoustic guitars for 2001's Acoustic Hits album (contains re-recordings of songs by the band, and released as a bonus disc to Greatest Hits). The version featured is probably more notable than any other re-recording on the album because it is the only recording from the album released elsewhere, on 2010's various artists album Brit Awards 2010.
