"17 Again" is a song recorded by the British pop music duo Eurythmics. The song appears on the band's 1999 album, Peace, and was released as the second single from the album in the UK in early 2000.

Peace was the first new album released by Eurythmics in a decade and the lyrics to "17 Again" find the duo reminiscing about their long-standing career in pop music. The song mentions "fake celebrities", "vicious queens", "the stupid papers and the stupid magazines" and makes the conclusion that "sweet dreams are made of anything that gets you in the scene". The closing of "17 Again" contains an interpolation of 1983's "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)".

"17 Again" peaked at number twenty-seven on the UK Singles Chart. In the U.S., there was no single, but promotional-only remixes were issued for nightclubs. "17 Again" became the first Eurythmics song to hit number one on the Hot Dance Club Play chart.

The song was featured in a season four episode of the American television series Will & Grace ("Bed, Bath, & Beyond"). It was also featured in season two of the American television series, Charmed, in the episode titled "How to Make a Quilt Out of Americans".
