Singalong! Dancing On My Own by Robyn

In my humble opinion, Robyn was the surprise comeback pop sensation of the millennium. Nothing against her Show Me Love days (I am quite fond, after all), but they were fleeting and then she fell off the face of the earth - or so we thought!  Until 2005 when her album Robyn made its way through the rounds of cool kids and then suddenly exploded as one of the best pop albums of all time. (No exaggeration! It's incredible!) Okay, so most people still don't know that she made any music after 1999, and they also don't really care about the music she made before 1999, but I love it all. This song in particular is one of the finest go-to songs for a pre-, post-, or mid-workday dance party tunes I have ever found. This, and every other song on the album.


DANCING ON MY OWN
by Robyn

Somebody said you got a new friend
Does she love you better than I can?
There's a big black sky over my town
I know where you're at, I bet she's around

Yeah, I know it's stupid
I just gotta see it for myself

I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her, ohh
I'm right over here, why can't you see me, ohh
I'm giving it my all, but I'm not the girl you're taking home, ooo
I keep dancing on my own
I keep dancing on my own

I'm just gonna dance all night
I'm all messed up, I'm so out of line
Stilettos and broken bottles
I'm spinning around in circles

I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her, ohh
I'm right over here, why can't you see me, ohh
I'm giving it my all, but I'm not the girl you're taking home, ooo
I keep dancing on my own
I keep dancing on my own

So far away but still so near
The lights go on, the music dies
But you don't see me standing here
I just came to say goodbye

I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her, ohh
I'm giving it my all, but I'm not the girl you're taking home, ooo
I keep dancing on my own
I keep dancing on my own

I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her, ohh
I'm right over here, why can't you see me, ohh
I'm giving it my all, but I'm not the girl you're taking home, ooo
I keep dancing on my own
I keep dancing on my own
