"Lonesome Tonight" is a song by British group New Order, released in April 1984 by Factory Records.

The A-side and main single was one of the group's more popular songs "Thieves Like Us" and the catalogue number for the single was FAC 103. Both tracks appear on the group's 1987 Substance compilation.

Like many early New Order songs, it features an extended instrumental conclusion, with Sumner's lyrics ending not quite three minutes into its playing time. The song has been played 29 times in concert.[1]
