"Look on the Floor" is a dance-pop song written by Sara Dallin, Keren Woodward, H. Korpi, M. Wollo, M. Malavasi and S. Micheli for Bananarama's album Drama (2005). The song was produced by Korpi and BlackCell. Contained in "Look on the Floor" is an interpolation of the chorus to the 1983 Italo disco song "Hypnotic Tango" by My Mine.

"Look on the Floor" was released as the second single from Drama in 2005 and peaked at number 26 in the United Kingdom, where it became their twenty-fifth top 40 single. Later in the year it was released internationally and peaked at number twelve in the Spanish singles chart.

Although the single was not released in the United States, it peaked at number two on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart strictly based on nightclub play of the import single (a rare occurrence for the U.S. dance chart), becoming Bananarama's biggest club hit since "Venus" in 1986. "Look on the Floor" soon caught on to radio, peaking at number five on the Hot Dance Airplay chart. The dance chart success of this single prompted an official release in the United States of Bananarama's previous single "Move in My Direction" in August 2006.

The Angel City remix of the song was included on the soundtrack to You Don't Mess with the Zohan.

Music video[edit]

The music video features Dallin and Woodward shot in an all white studio with an arrangement of white boxes and cylinders. Their scenes are intercut with a dance performance by three male dancers in front of mirrors. It was directed by Tim Royes.
