  1. "Wiggle" is a song by American singer-songwriter Jason Derulo, released as the fourth single from his third U.S. studio album, Talk Dirty North America. In Europe, the song was released as the sixth single from his third international album, Tattoos and the first single from the special edition of the album. The song features American rapper Snoop Dogg.
  2. "Wiggle" is the fifth studio album by the American punk rock band Screeching Weasel. It was released on January 15, 1993 through Lookout! Records. Their previous album, My Brain Hurts, had seen a sharp rise in the band's popularity and a shift in sound towards mid-tempo pop songs. With Wiggle, the band shifted gears yet again. Though several tracks retained the catchy, pop-punk sound, many others saw the band venturing into experiments with new wave and some of the harder-edged sounds of the early albums. Another major change was the amount of collaboration in songwriting. Rather than Ben Weasel being the sole author of the majority of the songs, Wiggle features a few credited to the entire band, one by guitarist Danny Vapid, and a couple with bassist Johnny Personality. In addition to this, there are three songs co-written by Joe King of The Queers, which were also recorded by his band. The album received mixed reviews. Many expected a continuation of the previous album and were surprised by the experimentation and harder-edged production. Since its initial release, many of the songs have come to be regarded as the band's best. Others have not held up so well over time.


"Wiggle" is a children's picture book by Doreen Cronin and is illustrated by Scott Menchin.
