Scorpio's Dance is the third album by the rock band Shocking Blue. It was released in 1970 on Pink Elephant Records.

This album continues the band's exploration into country music and Americana with tracks like "Alaska Country" and "Sally Was a Good Old Girl". It still stays true to its rock roots as well. Despite continuing their growth as a band, the album did not fare so well in America.

Track listing[edit]
