"Obsession" is a song. It is the second single by the French Canadian synthpop group Nudimension.

The song is in French (except for one refrain in English from Anne-Marie Cyr). It was recorded at Fountain Studios in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It was released by Saison Records (Canada) in May 1984.[1] Like most of Nudimension's singles, Anne-Marie Cyr sang in it. The single achieved moderate success in French-speaking regions of Canada, charting in the top 20 francophone Québécoise charts,[1] and in Europe.[2]

After the single charted, an English-language version (named "Rendez-Vous") was recorded. It was not released as a single, but it is on the band's greatest hits album The Best of Nudimension.[3]
