Does the song "Bulletproof" by La Roux sound exactly like a cover of a disco song, or is it just me?

This one is driving me nuts. When I first heard "Bulletproof" by La Roux on the radio, I honestly thought it was a cover of a disco song - a somewhat popular one. So did my husband, who's a professional DJ. According to Wikipedia and everything else I found, though, that's not the case.
I've heard that song so much (even at the checkout line at the grocery) that the original song I thought it was has slipped through my brain - I literally had tiny snippets in my head but now, nothing. Someone has to know what I'm talking about. Especially the "been there done that messed around" and "burning bridges shore to shore" lines, they're just so reminiscent of a song that for the life of me, I can't recall.
Maybe I'm just insane. But the fact that when I first said "oh, this is a cover, right?" to my husband and he agreed means that someone else out there has to know what I'm talking about.
