"The OMD Singles" is a singles compilation album by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, released in 1998. It reached #16 in the UK charts. Originally, the compilation was to include a second disc of new remixes; however, this idea was abandoned due to budget limitations. The few remixes that were produced were released separately as "The OMD Remixes". In 2003, "The OMD Singles" was reissued in France with the remix disc finally included, comprised of the 1998 remixes as well as additional remixes.
