"Disappointed" was the fourth single by the English band Electronic. Like their first single "Getting Away with It" it featured Neil Tennant of Pet Shop Boys as well as founding members Johnny Marr and Bernard Sumner. It was released in June 1992 on Parlophone soon after the demise of Factory Records. The single was even assigned the Factory catalogue number FAC 348, and the logo of the label remained on the artwork.
"Disappointed" was conceived just before the recording of New Order's sixth studio album Republic, and was performed live in December 1991 on Electronic's European tour: in Glasgow (sung by Bernard Sumner) and in London (sung by Tennant when Pet Shop Boys guested on three songs).
Although Electronic would enjoy three more Top 20 singles in the UK, "Disappointed" was the last major commercial success for the band on an international level, becoming a dance chart hit in America and reaching the Top 20 in Germany as well as #6 in Britain (their highest UK position).
"Disappointed" was featured in the 1992 film Cool World. Until the release of Get the Message - The Best of Electronic in 2006 its soundtrack album Songs from the Cool World was the only place the song was commercially available.
