Our Town – The Greatest Hits is the first greatest hits compilation album by the Scottish rock band Deacon Blue. The album reached the top spot of the UK Albums Chart in May 1994 for two weeks,[1] and has been certified Platinum. It was also their second and final number one album to date.[1] It is also notable for being the 500th number one album since the charts inception in 1956.

The album contains the previous singles from the band, minus "Closing Time" and "Hang Your Head". The album also contained three new tracks. "I Was Right and You Were Wrong", the first single from this album, was a pulsating Alternative rock track that continued and expanded the musical direction the band had taken with Whatever You Say, Say Nothing. "Bound to Love" and "Still in the Mood" were pop songs in the tradition of Deacon Blue's earlier albums.[citation needed]

The vinyl LP version of the album contained a fourth new track, "Beautiful Stranger".

"Dignity" was released, now for the third time, as the second single from the album.[1]
