"Move in My Direction" is a song written by British duo Bananarama, David Clewett and Ivar Lisinski for Bananarama's ninth studio album Drama (2005). The song was produced by Mute 8 and received a mixed reception from music critics. It was released as the first single in the third quarter of 2005 and reached number four in Israel and number fourteen in the United Kingdom, becoming the duo's first top forty hit in twelve years.

In the U.S., "Move in My Direction" was not promoted as a single until after the number two dance club success of follow-up single "Look on the Floor (Hypnotic Tango)". In August 2006 "Move in My Direction" entered the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart, more than a year after its initial UK release.

Music video[edit]

The music video features the two girls dressed up in fancy dresses while wandering listlessly by a busy road and sitting on a couch in an abandoned urban lot. Their shots are intercut with scenes of dancers performing dances ranging from tango to ballroom to breakdancing. Music video directed by Phil Griffin.
