The success of Saltburn and a subsequent TikTok craze has sparked an unexpected revival of Sophie Ellis Bextor’s 2001 hit, Murder on the Dancefloor, sending the song onto the US charts for the first time in over two decades.
Released in December 2001, the song peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart and stayed on the chart for 16 weeks.
