"Other People's Lives" is a 1997 7" single by Americanindie rock band Modest Mouse. The single features "Other People's Lives" on the A-side, with "Grey Ice Water" on the B-side. Both songs later appeared on the Building Nothing Out of Somethingcompilation and were left unreleased elsewhere. The first pressing was on clear bright blue vinyl. Up Records claims this was a mispressing and subsequent pressings were on dark seafoam green marbled vinyl. The green vinyl edition is rarer than the mispressed blue vinyl.
There are conflicting reports on the release date of this single, both from Up Records' official webpage. The main page on Modest Mouse claims that the single was released in 1997 but the direct link for the 7" claims it was released in 1998. On the majority of unofficial sites it is reported as being released in 1998 .
