"Destiny Calling" is a song by British alternative rock band James, released as three CD singles in November 1998 by Mercury Records. It reached number 17 on the UK Singles Chart. The song was one of two new tracks on the The Best Of album, along with "Runaground", which was also released as a single.

The song suggests the band have become successful and is accepted as a tongue in cheek look at their success. "So we may be gorgeous, so we may be famous: come back when we're getting old". The video includes images of the band featured on certain household items. It jokes with the opinion of some fans that the band was in the process of selling out.
