"Swings and Roundabouts" was the debut album by British dance duo Shanks & Bigfoot. The album was released in February 2000 and made the UK Top 20 upon release. It is best known for the hit single "Sweet Like Chocolate" released in 1999 making the UK #1 and Top 10 positions in other major territories.

The album was not as successful as hoped, with the lead single "Sweet Like Chocolate" a #1 hit a year before, and the second single "Sing-A-Long" a low chart effort, the album was poorly timed.
