"I'm Not Scared" is a 1988 song recorded by Britishpop band Eighth Wonder. The group's fifth single - the first single from the album Fearless - was released in 1988. It achieved success in France, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and the UK, where it was a top ten hit. Written by the Pet Shop Boys, the original version contains several words in French. "J'ai pas peur", the B-side of the vinyl, is the French adaptation of "I'm Not Scared". The 12" "disco mix" combines the two versions into one long mix.
Slant Magazine ranked the song 62nd in its 100 Greatest Dance Songs list, adding: ""I'm Not Scared" is unmistakably a Lowe/Tennant composition, with sharp staccato synth lines, a fluctuating bassline, histrionic lyrics ending in curly, figurative question marks (...), and — on the extended Disco Version — dramatic string stabs".
