"Your Town" is the first single from Deacon Blue's album Whatever You Say, Say Nothing. The song's release revealed a musical change in direction for the band, moving well into dance territory.

The B-sides continue to show the band's diverse range. "Almost Beautiful" is a classic, bluesy rock track, and "I've Been Making Such a Fool" is a simple, but lush, track in the style of a singer-songwriter confessional.

Additional versions of the single release contain various dance remixes of "Your Town".
