"Don't Wanna Lose This Feeling" is a dance-pop song written by Bruno Alexandre, Matthieu Joly, Dannii Minogue, Terry Ronald, James Theochari and Camille Troillard for Dannii Minogue's 2003 album Neon Nights. The song was released as the album's fourth single in June 2003. The single reached the top twenty in multiple countries, and topped the club charts in the United Kingdom. Its music video, directed by Phil Griffin, features Minogue dancing on a beach with her lover and friends.



A mashup between "Don't Wanna Lose This Feeling" and Madonna's 1985 single "Into the Groove" was also issued. Inspired by the many bootleg recordings being made in the UK, Minogue sent Madonna a copy of the mashup for her legal approval. Madonna, an artist who rarely approves of others using her music, called it "brilliant". Minogue and Della Sabina described Madonna's approval as "the biggest, most amazing thing".
