"You Should Be Dancing" was a single by the Bee Gees, from the "Children of the World" album in 1976. The single rose to number five on the UK singles chart and hit number one for 1 week on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number one for 7 weeks on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play. It was this song that first launched the Bee Gees into disco stardom, although rock-oriented drums and guitars can be heard in the background. It was also the only track from the group to top the Club play charts.

"You Should Be Dancing" is known today as the first chart-topper in which Barry Gibb uses his now-trademark falsetto (he had previously used it on the top-10 "Nights on Broadway", and on "Fanny (Be Tender With My Love)"). The song was prominently featured in the movie "Saturday Night Fever". This song and the scene from the movie containing the song were seen and heard in Short Circuit.

The Boston Celtics also play this song when they are about to win a basketball game accompanied by the ever popular "Dancing Gino" video from American Bandstand.

Live performances of "You Should Be Dancing" during the 1979 "Spirits Having Flown" tour featured the Bee Gees' younger sibling, Andy Gibb, on backing vocals.

In World of Warcraft, the male human's dance is based on this song.

Cover versions

Blake Lewis, the runner-up on the sixth season of "American Idol", performed the song on the show on May 8, 2007. Its studio version was later released on the "American Idol" official website and in the "", the compilation of the studio versions of song performed by the finalists of "Idol".
