"Single-Bilingual" is a song by the British synthpop duo Pet Shop Boys. It was released as the third single of their 1996's album Bilingual. The single peaked at number 14 on the UK Singles Chart.

On the album the song is named "Single", but was renamed "Single-Bilingual" because Everything but the Girl also had a song named "Single" around the time. The album version cross-fades with the previous track, "Discoteca", and the music video contains an interpolation of the aforementioned song at the end.
