Mēness dejas is a 1995 album containing eight songs by Latvian band Dzeltenie Pastnieki as reinterpreted by Uģis Vītiņš. Originally found on four of the band's 1980s album releases, the songs have been re-arranged radically, and have had all the vocals re-recorded by the original vocalists.

Mēness dejas is notable as the band's first release on CD, and was done to meet the popular demand for a CD compilation of the band's hits. Thus, its concept could be compared to stopgap quasi-compilation releases from other synthpop artists like Kraftwerk's The Mix (1991) and Yello's 1980–1985 The New Mix in One Go (1986), both of which likewise contained newly recorded versions of previously released material.

Uģis Vītiņš went on to appear on the band's next album, Kaķis (2003) as well as played on Ingus Baušķenieks's solo tour (2004–2005). His brother Toms Vītiņš, who played bass and designed the cover, later also did the cover for the CD release of the album Alise.
