"On Your Own" is a song by Blur. It was released as a single on 16 June 1997, and can also be found on the album Blur. It charted at number 5 on the UK singles chart.[1] The song is used in The Beach (2000).

B-Sides[edit]

The B-sides were all recorded at John Peel's home studio; Peel Acres. They were previously broadcast on BBC Radio 1 on 8 May 1997. An extensive interview was also broadcast, but is currently commercially unavailable. Stickered copies of CD1 and the white vinyl 7" featured the text 'includes POPSCENE'. This is because "Popscene" did not appear on the UK version of Modern Life is Rubbish and was, therefore, rare and sought after by fans until its inclusion on Midlife: A Beginner's Guide to Blur. The version that appears here merges into "Song 2". All of Blur's Peel Sessions were later released on the second disc of the Japan only compilation Bustin' + Dronin', an album that features three versions of "On Your Own".
