"Set on You" is a song recorded by English girl group Bananarama. The song is a non-album track that was released as the B-side to the group's previous single "A Trick of the Night". It is an early version of what ultimately became the album version of "More Than Physical".

"Set on You" was the first in a series of club-oriented songs recorded by Bananarama which specifically demonstrated the group's shift towards the club market.[1]

Lyrically, the song breaks from their other work. It features only a few abstract lines (Desire/Falling, falling, falling/I'm so set on you) that are repeated several times, and even sampled. Bananarama would later use this sparse lyric style in club-oriented 12" b-side songs, such as "Clean Cut Boy", "Ecstasy", and "Treat Me Right", and even an album track, "Megalomaniac".

In Canada, the song was issued as an exclusive 12" promo single, also featured on the single were "More Than Physical (Musclebound Mix)" and "Ghost". The promo featured the same cover design as "Do Not Disturb". The Canadian promo single of "Set on You" is highly sought-after by collectors.

On March 19, 2007, Bananarama's first six studio albums were re-issued by Rhino Records. All re-issues are remastered and each includes several bonus tracks, consisting of B-sides and remixes. "Set on You" is featured as a bonus track on the re-issue of the third Bananarama album True Confessions.
