"Don't Wanna Lose This Feeling" is a dance-pop song written by Bruno Alexandre, Matthieu Joly, Dannii Minogue, Terry Ronald, James Theochari and Camille Troillard for Dannii Minogue's 2003 album Neon Nights.

A mashup between "Don't Wanna Lose This Feeling" and Madonna's 1985 single "Into the Groove" was also issued. Inspired by the many bootleg recordings being made in the UK, Minogue sent Madonna a copy of the mashup for her legal approval. Madonna, an artist who rarely approves of others using her music, called it "brilliant". Minogue and Della Sabina described Madonna's approval as "the biggest, most amazing thing".

The video concludes with scenes of Minogue being filmed by her lover and performing a dance routine with two female backup dancers.
