"Listen Up!" is a single by the band the Gossip, released in 2006, and taken from the album Standing in the Way of Control. It was re-released in 2007, peaking at number 39 on the UK Singles Chart in this second run.

The "Tronik Youth" remix was included on the Cream (nightclub) compilation "Cream Summer 2007".


There are two versions of this music video. In the original version, directed by Morgen Dye, Beth Ditto is eating a pizza in response to jibes about her weight and several young people dancing to the track. The 2007 version (billed as the radio version) a transgender woman and a transgender man walk around Portland, Oregon, cruising during the day, then later in the evening at a club the two stare at each other from across the dance floor and they start dancing together.
