Dancing with Myself by Generation X (Nouvelle Vague version) is featured in Wheels, the ninth episode of Season One. It is sung by Artie.

While practicing, he plays the guitar at the same time. Will then sees him. During the performance when he's singing the song, he stares longingly at Tina, who is eating lunch and laughing in the cafeteria.

Lyrics

Artie:
On the floor of Tokyo, oh
Or down in London town to go, go
With the record selection
With the mirror reflection
I'm dancing with myself

When there's no one else in sight
In the crowded lonely night
Well I wait too long
For my love vibration
And I'm dancing with myself

I'm dancing with myself
I'm dancing with myself
Well there's nothing to lose
And there's nothing to prove
And I'll be dancing with myself

If I looked all over the world
And there's every type of girl
But your empty eyes
Seem to pass me by
And leave me dancing with myself

So let's sink another drink
'Cause it'll give me time to think
If I had the chance
I'd ask the world to dance
And I'll be dancing with myself

Oh dancing with myself (A din-don-da)
Oh dancing with myself (A din-don-da)
Oh there's nothing to lose (A din-don-da)
And there's nothing to prove (A din-don-da)
I'll be dancing with myself (A din-don-da)
Oh dancing with myself (A din-don-da)
Oh dancing with myself (A din-don-da)
Oh there's nothing to lose (A din-don-da)
And there's nothing to prove (A din-don-da)
And I'll be dancing with myself (A din-don-da)

So let's sink another drink
'Cause it'll give me time to think
If I had the chance
I'd ask the world to dance
And I'll be dancing with myself

I'll be dancing with myself
So let's sink another drink
'Cause it'll give me... time to think

A din-don-da...
A din-don-da-ah...
A din-don-da...
A din-don-da...

Dancing with myself (A din-don-da)
Oh dancing with myself (A din-don-da)
Well there's nothing to lose (A din-don-da)
And there's nothing to prove (A din-don-da)
I'll be dancing with myself (A din-don-da)
Dancing with myself (A din-don-da)
Dancing with myself (A din-don-da)
Well there's nothing to lose (A din-don-da)
And there's nothing to prove (A din-don-da)
And I'm dancing with myself (A din-don-da)

Trivia

  • This was Artie's first released solo of the series.
  • The original Generation X version was played in the background later in the episode in a scene where Finn and Rachel are shown trying out their wheelchairs with little to no success.

Errors

  • When Artie is doing tricks in his wheelchair, the wheels on the back of the chair that prevent him from falling backwards disappear and reappear, depending on whether or not he is performing a trick.
