Songfacts®:

  • This dance track features a spoken-word section from Lindsay Lohan, in which she portrays a doctor treating a patient suffering from - yep - dance-phobia.

    The actress was recruited for the song after a text message exchange with frontman Simon Le Bon. "She asked to be part of it, texting Simon, and we thought, actually, there is one spot, 'Danceophobia,' where we needed someone to do a little role play for us," keyboardist Nick Rhodes told Billboard magazine.
  • Lohan's spoken-word interlude was inspired by one of Michael Jackson's classic numbers. "The idea came from Jackson's 'Thriller,' actually, the Vincent Price role," Rhodes explained, adding that the actress "nailed it."
