"Spooky" is a song by New Order released in 1993 and the final single from their 1993 album Republic. It would be their last single proper until 2001's "Crystal".

CD one featured remixes by Fluke, while CD two featured remixes by Paul van Dyk and Tony Garcia. Several different versions exist, notably the Singles album featured a different edit of "Spooky", which had not previously been available in the UK. The adoption of that version was problematic for some fans who felt that (like the Perfecto remix of "World") the Fluke Minimix of "Spooky" was the best single version. The promo video used the Fluke version. The 2016 re-release of Singles, which corrected many of the errors featured on the 2005 release, includes the Fluke Minimix.[2]

Apart from its appearance on the Singles album, "Spooky" is rarely included on New Order compilations; notably, it was not featured on 1994's best-of or the expansive Retro box set.
