Jack Your Body is a popular song by Steve 'Silk' Hurley first released towards the end of 1986.

One of the landmark records in the history of House music, Jack Your Body was written and produced by Hurley. The song became a major hit on the UK singles chart, reaching #1 for two weeks in January and February 1987, despite Hurley's refusal to promote it. This was the UK's first house music #1, and paved the way for the acid house sound popular there during the late 1980s. Notably however, the track broke the chart rules, as the 12-inch format exceeded the then-current 25-minute limit. In spite of Jack Your Body's success, Hurley has had no further singles whatsoever (under his own name) in the UK Top 75.

The bassline of 'Jack Your Body' is identical to First Choice's "Let No Man Put Asunder".
