Dancing With Myself è un singolo del 1980 composto dalla band punk britannica dei Generation X, e per l’esattezza dal cantante Billy Idol e dal bassista Tony James. Fu inciso in quello che sarebbe rimasto il loro ultimo album, dal titolo Kiss Me Deadly (1981).
Il vero successo però venne l’anno successivo, quando il solo Billy Idol inaugurava la propria carriera solista con un remix dal sapore meno punk e più pop: ne ricavò due nuove versioni, una da 3 minuti e 20, l’altra da 5:50.
All’incisione di quest’ultime due versioni collaborò anche il chitarrista dei Sex Pistols Steve Jones, il quale fece appena in tempo a registrare le proprie parti prima di finire sotto processo per possesso ed uso di droga.

C
On the floors of Tokyo
          F
A-down in London town's a go go
    G
A-with the record selection,

And the mirror's reflection,
      F
I'm a dancin' with myself
       C
A-when there's no one else in sight,
     F
A-in crowded lonely night
        G
Well, I wait so long for my love vibration
        F
And I'm dancing with myself
       C
Oh oh. Dancing with a-myself,
        F
Oh, oh, dancing with myself
              G
Well, there's nothing to lose

And there's nothing to prove, well,
F                                   C
Dancing a-with myself, oh, oh, oh, oh.

     C
If I looked all over the world
            F
And there's ev'ry type of girl
         G
But your empty eyes seem to pass me by
             F
And leave me dancin' with myself.
         C
So let's sink another drink
             F
'Cause it'll give me time to think
     G
If I had the chance I'd ask one to dance
            F
And I'll be dancin' with myself

       C
Oh oh. Dancing with a-myself,
        F
Oh, oh, dancing with myself
              G
Well, there's nothing to lose

And there's nothing to prove, well,
F                                
Dancing a-with myself
           C 
Oh, oh, oh.
            F         G
Oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh...
