"Over Rising" is the fourth single by the English alternative rock band The Charlatans, released in February 1991. Reaching number 15 in the UK, it followed "The Only One I Know" and "Then" into the UK top 20, and reached number seven in Ireland, where it remains the group's only top 10 hit.

Although "Over Rising" was never featured on any studio album, it did appear on the Charlatans' first greatest hits compilation, 1998's Melting Pot. It was one of two non-album singles (excluding the re-release of their debut single "Indian Rope") released by the group in 1991.

"Over Rising" was the last Charlatans single to feature the group's original guitarist John Baker, who was replaced by Mark Collins in mid-1991.
