"High Energy" is the title of a 1984 song by American dance singer Evelyn Thomas. The song was very popular in dance clubs around the world, and it topped the American dance chart in September of that year. It also spent four weeks atop the pop chart in Germany, and peaked at #5 on the UK singles chart. It became one of the earliest successful songs within the genre of music that has come to be known as Hi-NRG. On the SoBe Music compilation album "Gay Classics, Volume 1: Ridin' the Rainbow", the liner notes describe the song as "...engagingly captur [ing] the spirit of the genre through uplifting lyrics tightly fused with dazzling synth work".
