"Dancing On My Own" is a song by Swedish singer Robyn, taken from her fifth studio album, Body Talk Pt. 1 (2010). The song was written and produced by Robyn and Patrik Berger, and was inspired by disco anthems by Ultravox, Sylvester and Donna Summer. The song was released as Body Talk Pt. 1's lead single on 1 June 2010, in Sweden and the United States. "Dancing on My Own" is an electronic ballad that speaks of a female protagonist who dances alone in a club while watching her ex-lover with another woman. "Dancing On My Own" received positive reviews from critics, who compared its theme of loneliness to Robyn's previous singles "With Every Heartbeat" and "Be Mine!" The song peaked atop the Sverigetopplistan chart, becoming Robyn's first number one in her native country. The song also reached the top ten in Denmark, Norway, and the United Kingdom. In the United States, the song managed to reach number three on the Hot Dance Club Songs chart. "Dancing On My Own" was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording. The accompanying music video was directed by Max Vitali and sees Robyn walking around alone in a club, and cutscenes of her standing in front of a microphone pole on a stage-like setting. Robyn has performed the song numerous times, notably on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. "Dancing On My Own" was also used on television shows such as Gossip Girl, Orange is the New Black and Girls and RuPaul's Drag Race. On 12 September 2010, she performed it at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards with deadmau5. Calum Scott's 2016 cover of "Dancing On My Own" reached number 2 on the UK Singles Chart.
