Dancing on the Valentine is a Duran Duran Video 45 released by PMI in the UK and Sony in the US in October 1984 (1984-10). It was released on VHS, Beta, Laserdisc, and Video8 (8mm) format.

Dancing on the Valentine is a collection of the three videos from Seven and the Ragged Tiger.

The title comes from the lyrics of "The Reflex": "You gone too far this time / But I'm dancing on the valentine". The artwork was also highly influenced by the release of "The Reflex" single, earlier in the year.

A re-release in 1991 combined Dancing on the Valentine with the band's previous two-track Video 45, Duran Duran.
