A remixed version of "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing" credited to "Groove Generation featuring Leo Sayer" charted on the UK Singles Chart in 1998, peaking at #32. [ [http://www.chartstats.com/songinfo.php?id=26582 UK 1998 remix chart info at chartstats.com] ] In 2006, the song "I Don't Feel Like Dancin' by the American band Scissor Sisters was often compared with Sayer's song because of its tempo, arrangement and subject matter. In episode 3F21 of "The Simpsons" ("Homerpalooza"), a teenaged Homer and his friend Barney alternate singing the chorus of this song into hairbrushes in Homer's room.

Sayer re-recorded the song with The Wiggles in 2008 for a Wiggles DVD, also entitled "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing."
