"Good Dancers" is a 2003 song by Australian alternative rock duo The Sleepy Jackson, released on 13 October 2003 as the second single from the album Lovers. The song charted at #71 in the UK.[1]

Music videos[edit]

Two music videos were produced for the song. The first was directed by Nash Edgerton and depicts a janitor (played by Dan Wyllie) in a hospital walking into a sparse room and eventually dancing with a fellow nurse (played by Rita Kalnejais). The second, produced for the song's American release, has a different narrative and centers around angels in a forest running and dancing. The music video was nominated for Best Video at the ARIA Music Awards of 2001.[2]
