"Taking Chances" is a song recorded by Canadian recording artist Celine Dion, taken from her tenth English studio album of the same name (2007). It was written by songwriter Kara DioGuardi and former Eurythmics member Dave Stewart for their band named Platinum Weird. It was supposed to be released as a single in February 2007 for their unreleased self-titled album. However, after DioGuardi and Stewart recorded the song, they played it for Dion's husband René Angélil, who loved it and Dion recorded it.

It was released as the first single from Taking Chances in September 2007. "Taking Chances" is a pop ballad with a soft rock finish. Lyrically, it is about trusting and baring our souls to each other and committing to making something special. The line, "So talk to me, like lovers do" came from the Eurythmics song "Here Comes the Rain Again." The song received positive reviews from music critics, who praised Dion for taking risks and called it a hopeful and heartfelt song.

The song was a success around the world, peaking inside the top ten in Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Italy and Switzerland. It also peaked at number 40 on the UK Singles Chart, while on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, it reached number 54. It also topped the Hot Dance Club Play chart. The song was nominated for the Single of the Year at the Juno Awards of 2009. "Taking Chances" was covered on Fox's hit TV show Glee by Lea Michele's character Rachel Berry. Her version peaked at number 71 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The music video, directed by Paul Boyd, was filmed in three days, between 15–17 September 2007 in several different locations, in the Las Vegas Valley. It was released on 16 October 2007.
