Bextor has performed the disco classic "Yes Sir, I Can Boogie" (a Baccara song from 1977) live in concert, and her recorded rendition of it was included on the Maxi-CD single for "I Won't Change You", released in two packages, on December 2003 and February 2004. The 2004 multi-artist compilation "Discomania" from Mercury Records also included "Yes Sir, I Can Boogie".
In June 2002, her next dance single, an electronica/pop song called "Get Over You", was released. It debuted at #11 on the Australian pop chart and later reached #4. It reached #3 Pop in the U.K. A new companion song included on the "Get Over You" single is "Live It Up (Acoustic Version)". She also released a dance song called "Music Gets the Best of Me" in 2002 on the re-issue of her "Read My Lips" album, and it became the next single, released on November 4, 2002.
The electro-pop single "Mixed Up World" was released on October 13, 2003, and her second album "Shoot from the Hip" was out since October 27, 2003. Her next pop single, "I Won't Change You", was released on December 15, 2003 and reached the top 10 in Britain in January 2004. In March 2005 her house song "Circles (Just My Good Time)", by Busface featuring "Mademoiselle E.B.", was released and became a club hit, reaching number one on the Music Week Commercial Club Chart.
Her rock-pop single "Catch You" was scheduled for release on February 19, 2007 in the U.K. Her house dance single "Me and My Imagination" came out on May 12, 2007 in the U.K. with the equally electronic B-side "Move to the Music". Her mid-tempo ballad "Today the Sun's on Us" became a single in August 2007.

"Murder on the Dancefloor" -- which features the bass guitar of Guy Pratt, guitar-playing by John Themis, and strings by the Wired Strings (a British-based female quartet led by Rosie Wetter) -- reached #2 Pop in the U.K. in December 2001, #2 Pop in Ireland in January 2002, #5 Pop in Canada in May 2002, #3 Pop in Australia in February 2002, and #2 Pop in New Zealand in April 2002. It also became a radio hit in Japan, France, and Latin American countries and has got some airplay in Canada and the United States. On the American Dance chart it reached #26 in late 2002. "Murder on the Dancefloor" is one of the representatives of the return of disco music. It's so nice to hear contemporary dance songs with strings. CR-ed+ Gold called it "A dance classic in the making, this latest offering is superb. Catchy, memorable and totally addictive." Alan Braidwood, writing for BBC Radio 1, wrote "It's quite catchy in the way that 'Take me Home' was but not as good as 'Groovejet'." Mark Clapham wrote in Teenmusic.co.uk "...while not as instantly delicious as 'Take Me Home', it does grow on you. With breathy vocals and disco beats, this is definitely one for discerning Xmas parties." Steve Canavan of the Bolton Evening News wrote: "This is an attempt at having another huge hit from the woman who famously beat Posh Spice to the Number One spot last year, and I think she's definitely succeeded. Very catchy and perfect for today's chart. Will be massive and then some." Billboard Magazine said: "...she possesses enough attitude and sass - and a hint of a British accent - to really raise the bar on this giddily inventive song."
"Murder on the Dancefloor" was included on Die Jury empfiehlt's 2004 CD compilation "Die Besten Disco-Hits" from BMG Deutschland GmbH (Ar-Express) along with another modern disco song, "Crying at the Discotheque" by Alcazar, and 1970s disco classics like "Relight My Fire", "I Will Survive", "D.I.S.C.O.", and "We Are Family".
