"Single-Bilingual" is a song by the British synthpop duo Pet Shop Boys. It was released as the third single of their 1996's album Bilingual. The single peaked at #14 on the UK Singles Chart.

On the album the song is named "Single", but was renamed "Single-Bilingual" because Everything but the Girl also had a song named "Single" around the time. The album version cross-fades with the previous track, "Discoteca", and the music video contains an interpolation of the aforementioned song at the end.
