"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 only number one in the United Kingdom to date.

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 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 onboard SID sound chip in the computer.

Music video[edit]

The video, a cinematographic melange, is staged as an animated bill poster for the band, located outside Phoenix Cinema in North London. As a young boy gazes into the poster, the camera zooms in and the poster fills the frame, suddenly animating into complex motion and dramatic scenes, before pulling out and the image returning to a still bill poster at the end.

The video was created using a combination of digital compositing techniques including 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 by flame artist Ben Robards at Absolute Post, and editor Amanda James at Final.[1]
