Get Happy is a studio album by Elvis Costello and the Attractions. The fourth album by Elvis Costello, his third with the Attractions, it is notable for being a dramatic break in tone from Costello's three previous albums, and for being heavily influenced by R&B, ska and soul music. The cover art was intentionally designed to have a retro feel, to look like the cover of an old LP with ring wear on both front and back. Get Happy bursts with energy and invention, standing as a testament to how Costello, the pop encyclopedia, can reinvent the past in his own image. Track Listing.

The pace of Get Happy was often streets ahead and the pop is boosted to the limits of 1980 to a point of being a frantic carnival unconsciously celebrating it's own time period. The result is softly twisted and sometimes inconsistent bundle of songs that seem to never really get happy. And that's an interesting motif on this album, the wild goosechase and overly energetic abrasiveness of Costello all seems to be an instant gratification search for happiness rather than actual happiness. read more.

Elvis Costello from the liner notes: Several of the songs on Get Happy had been played on the mysteriously named Armed Funk Tour in the spring of 1979, our last American trip for over two years. However our first trial sessions revealed our road arrangements to be trite, brittle, and uncomfortably close to the rapidly dating style which was now called New Wave. The decision to change was not exactly agonized over. The first remaster of this album was so treble heavy that it was unlistenable, so it's nice that it's finally been sorted Nothing earth shattering on disc two, but all interesting snapshots of the man at workplay.
