"Menergy" is a 1981 dance single by producer Patrick Cowley. Along with the song "I Want to Take You Home", "Menergy" spent two weeks atop the Billboard Dance/Disco chart in October and November 1981.[1] It was Cowley's most successful single of four Top 10 dance chart hits, all of which occurred within the span of 15 months. As with Cowley's other singles, "Menergy" did not place on any other chart in the USA. In 1984, a version of "Menergy" was released where Sylvester's vocals were featured.

It was used in 2009 in the trailer for the video game Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony, as well as the in-game radio station K109 The Studio.
