"Taking the Town" is a song by Australian rock band Icehouse, written by Iva Davies. It appears on their third studio album Sidewalk. It peaked at No. 29 on the Australian ARIA singles chart.

The music video for "Taking the Town" was filmed by Russell Mulcahy in Sydney, and used similar effects to Elton John's "Sad Songs (Say So Much)", filmed in Rushcutters Bay also by Russell Mulcahy when John was in Sydney for his first marriage. It did not feature Icehouse's then-keyboardist Andy Qunta, instead it featured a look-alike with his back to the camera.
