Singles 93–03 is a compilation album by English electronic music duo The Chemical Brothers, released on 22 September 2003. It is a collection of singles from the duo between 1993 to 2003 (though not all the singles are included), plus two new songs "Get Yourself High" and "The Golden Path". Early copies of the CD came with a bonus CD. It was certified gold by the BPI on 24 October 2003.[citation needed]

"Otter Rock", which is featured on the bonus disc as a previously unreleased song, also appears on The Big Noise (a charity CD released in The Guardian for Oxfam).

Singles[edit]

"The Golden Path" was released on 15 September 2003 as the first single from the album. It reached number 17 in the UK charts.[citation needed] "Get Yourself High" was the second single from the album, released on 8 December 2003. It was not eligible for the UK charts because it had five songs instead of three songs, which is required for qualification.

Track listing[edit]

Many of the songs are edited, even if it's only by roughly 10 seconds.
