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

In some cases, a program - or advertisement - will show someone dancing by themselves. Typically this is a person doing a side-to-side move but depending on how well they do, it could be quite good. (Note that the music video of the eponymous song shows Billy Idol fighting off zombies, and holding onto a transformer and shooting electricity at them, but he never dances.)

See also "Risky Business" Dance.

  • Not a visual example, but the Christina Perri song "The Lonely" mentions this in the chorus:
    Dancing slowly in an empty room
    Can The Lonely take the place of you?
