"Dancing Queen" is a song originally by Swedish group ABBA. In 1998, Kylie Minogue performed the song during her Intimate and Live tour and subsequently released it as a promotional single from the live album of the tour. It was released in 1999 by Mushroom records, as an edited live version, as well as featuring the live version of "Cowboy Style" from the live album.

Live performances

Kylie first performed "Dancing Queen" during the Intimate and Live tour in 1998, which was launched to promote Impossible Princess (1997); Kylie had wanted to include the song as a nod to her gay audience for their support throughout her career. She then performed the song at the closing ceremony for the 2000 Summer Olympics in the same outfit she wore for the Intimate and Live tour.

The song was then considered for, and originally part of the set list for Kylie's Showgirl tour, as it was the song that gave birth to Kylie's showgirl persona, but it was ultimately discarded.

Lyrics

You can dance, you can jive
Having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene
Diggin' the Dancing Queen

Friday night and the lights are low
Looking out for the place to go
Where they play the right music, getting in the swing
You come in to look for a King
Anybody could be that guy
Night is young and the music's high
With a bit of rock music, everything is fine
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance

You are the Dancing Queen
Young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing Queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive
Having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene
Diggin' the Dancing Queen

You're a teaser, you turn them on
Leave them burning and then you're gone
Looking out for another, anyone will do
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance

You are the Dancing Queen
Young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing Queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive
Having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene
Diggin' the Dancing Queen
