"Houdini" is a song by American indie pop group Foster the People from their debut studio album Torches. Written by the group's frontman Mark Foster, the song was first released as a promotional single exclusively in the United Kingdom on April 1, 2011.

The song appeared in the 2012 film LOL. It also appeared in the TV shows Awkward and Suits.
Writing and recording 
"Houdini" was written by the group's frontman Mark Foster while he was working as a commercial jingle writer at Mophonics. While showing his then-girlfriend the offices on a so-called "take-your-girlfriend-to-work-day", Foster demonstrated how he wrote songs, putting a simple drum beat and vocal sample together in 10 minutes. Four days later, he revisited the composition and began adding piano chords. Reflecting on the song, he described his then-girlfriend as a "good muse".

Music video 
The music video for "Houdini" premiered on YouTube on April 25, 2012. The video follows a story of Foster the People getting crushed by a lighting rig during rehearsal before a concert held the next day. Their manager finds out, and uses his assistants to move their limbs. The manager hires some scientists, who turn the band into robots. The video ends with the band in white clothes, with some dancers, dressed in black, dancing behind them, while the instruments play themselves. James Mackey plays the paramedic in the video. This music video was nominated for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards award for Best Short Form Music Video.
