"Sidewalking" is a song by Scottish alternative rock band The Jesus and Mary Chain. It was released as a non-studio-album single in March 1988, and included in the compilation album Barbed Wire Kisses released in April 1988. It reached number 30 in the UK single charts.[1] The single is also included on the July 2002 compilation album 21 Singles.

The track reflected the bands interest in hip hop and sampled the drumbeat from the 1984 single Roxanne's Revenge by Roxanne Shante as a loop.[2]
