"Feeling So Real" is a song by American electronica musician Moby, released in 1994 as the second single from his renowned studio album Everything Is Wrong. The single peaked at number 30 on the UK Singles Chart and at number 9 on the U.S. Billboard dance charts.[citation needed]

The song features the phrases "sound system rocking" and "set it up DJ" spoken by Kochie Banton, who also appears in Moby's following single, "Everytime You Touch Me". The guest vocalist for the song is Rozz Morehead.

The B-side is Moby's take on the Joy Division classic, "New Dawn Fades". It would later be included on the Joy Division tribute album, and Moby would go on to perform it live with New Order.

The remix CD contains all the separate parts (vocals, strings, drums, etc.) for "Everytime You Touch Me". Mute and Elektra held a competition where one had to use the parts to create a remix "in any style you want" and mail it in on digital audio tape (DAT) by November 18, 1994. The winning remixes were included on later singles.
