"I Don't Feel Like Dancin'" is a song by American pop band Scissor Sisters. It was released in July 2006 as the first single from their album Ta-Dah. It was written by Jason Sellards, Scott Hoffman and Elton John, the latter of whom provides piano for the song, and was the band's first top ten single in many countries. The song also scored the band their first UK number-one.

Content[edit]

The song's tempo, arrangement, use of falsetto vocals, and subject matter have been compared by reviewers in The Guardian and The Sun newspapers to Leo Sayer's 1976 hit "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing". The song also features a rhythm piano that makes reference to "December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)" by The Four Seasons.

The song has a segment after the first chorus that was composed on the Commodore 64 using the on board SID sound chip in the computer.

Music video[edit]

The video is staged as an animated bill poster (outside Phoenix Cinema in North London), with the camera zooming in with the poster filling the frame and observing motion within the poster before pulling out and the image returning to a still bill poster. It was created using a combination of digital compositing techniques, stop/start technology and background/foreground illusions.

Chester McKee, a contestant on I'd Do Anything, appears at the start of the video.

The music video was directed by Andy Soup with Independent Films, with producer Verity White and director of photography Alex Barber. Post-production was done by flame artist Ben Robards at Absolute Post and editor Amanda James at Final.
