"Zorba's Dance" is an instrumental by Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis. The song featured for the dance, which has become known as sirtaki, in the 1964 film Zorba the Greek, for which Theodorakis wrote the soundtrack and became renowned around the world. It is now commonly played and danced to in Greek tavernas. The film's track has since been recorded as a standalone song by many different musicians from around the world.

Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass recorded a 4:25 version of the song (as "Zorba the Greek") for their 1965 album Going Places. Issued as an edited single with live audience dubbed in, the song reached number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The tune reached number 6 in the UK Singles Chart in August 1965, performed by Marcello Minerbi & His Orchestra (Durium Records DRS 54001). The composition provided the inspiration for "Bend It!", a 1966 hit single by British group Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich that reached number 1 in Germany, New Zealand and South Africa.

The song was featured, among others, in the film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and in the "Subdivision" episode of Prison Break, where Charles "Haywire" Patoshik raided a fast food joint and gorged himself on soda and ice cream.

The song is particularly infamous in Peru for its association with Sendero Luminoso. In the early 1990s, excerpts of a video of Sendero Luminoso's leadership dancing to the song during a celebration was given to the media, showing that the organization's heads were hiding in middle-class districts of Lima itself.

The British dance act LCD covered the song in 1998. Their version peaked at number 20 in the UK chart that year, and at number 22 when re-issued in October 1999.

The instrumental was also performed as the interval act Folk Dances From Different Countries by the Igor Moiseyev Ensemble in the 2nd. Semifinal of the Eurovision Song Contest 2009 in Moscow, Russia.

it was also used for the Greek entry in the Eurovision Dance Contest 2007 held in London, United Kingdom performed by Ourania Kolliou and Spiros Pavlidis as their 2nd. dance, placing 13th. with 31 points.
