The Singles is a compilation of singles by The Who that was released in November 1984. It was released worldwide except for North America.[1]

The version of "I Can See for Miles" contained herein is not the classic single version, but a BBC live recording with a loud, overdubbed bass track.[2] The 2011 Japanese Reissue included the classic single version.
