"Fascinated" is the title of a hit song by the dance-pop / Hi-NRG / freestyle musical girl group Company B. It was the first single released off their self-titled album in early 1987. It was produced by Ish Ledesma and released by Atlantic Records. The song reached the number one position on the "Billboard" Hot Dance Club Play chart in the U.S. in March of 1987 and remained there for four weeks. Soon after, the single was picked up by Top 40 radio, and it charted on the Billboard Hot 100 later that same year, peaking at number 21. The song spent eight weeks in the Top 40 in May and June of 1987. It became Company B's most successful hit single in the U.S. and is considered to be a classic 1980s American dance/freestyle recording. The lead singer is currently a dancer for KC and the Sunshine Band

The song has been covered by other club dance recording artists, such as the American-born singer Suzanne Palmer and the Canadian-born singer Emjay.
