“I’m So Excited” is a Dance-pop, R&B, new wave, post-disco, Hi-NRG multi genre song performed by American recording artists The Pointer Sisters. Jointly written and composed by The Pointer Sisters in collaboration with Trevor Lawrence, it was originally released in 1982 and saw a re-release in 1984. It is considered to be the group’s signature song. The song was originally recorded for, and appeared on, the sisters’s 1982 album So Excited! and was subsequently released as a single. Upon its release, the single charted at No. 28 on the Billboard Dance Music/Club Play Singles chart, No. 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 46 on the Billboard R&B Singles chart.

Two years later, on the group’s RIAA-certified multi-platinum album Break Out, a slightly remixed and edited version of the song was included and re-released as a single. This time, it peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 25 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. In 2001, the song was included in the RIAA and National Endowment for the Arts project Songs of the Century, a list intended to “promote a better understanding of America’s musical and cultural heritage.” The song was ranked #264 out of 365 songs.

The song was featured in the 1982 movie Summer Lovers, though it was not included on the movie’s soundtrack. It was also featured in the theatrical and VHS releases of National Lampoon’s Vacation but was replaced with the sonically unrelated “Little Boy Sweet” on future versions. Later on, it briefly featured in Eddie Murphy’s version of The Nutty Professor.
