"Can't Stop the Music" is a song recorded by American disco group the Village People. It was the first release after the exit of original lead singer Victor Willis. Lead vocals are sung by replacement cop Ray Simpson, the song was the first Village People single since their commercial breakthrough to not chart inside the US top 40, though it fared much better in the UK (reaching number 11) and Australia (reaching number 1). It is the title track from the soundtrack album of their feature movie, Can't Stop the Music, which failed to attract a major audience, except in Australia.[1]

Puerto Rican boy band Menudo wrote a Spanish-language adaptation of the song, entitled "No Se Puede Parar la Música", in 1981.
