"Stargazer" is a song written, produced and recorded by English rock band Siouxsie & the Banshees. It was released as the second single from the band's eleventh studio album The Rapture. To date it is the final single released from the band.

The track is an uptempo, guitar-driven pop tune. It was remixed slightly for its single release, bringing the guitar elements further forward in the mix. Club remixes were produced by Juno Reactor. Lyrically the song casts Siouxsie Sioux as a dreamer who looks up at the stars and wishes for a better life and to "escape this straight-jacket of constraint".

"Stargazer" did not chart in the United States. It peaked at number sixty-four in the UK singles chart. Shortly after the release of this single, Siouxsie & the Banshees disbanded, leaving Siouxsie Sioux and Budgie to direct their priorities to their side-project The Creatures.
