"An Englishman in New York" is a single released by Godley & Creme, from their 1979 album Freeze Frame. It is memorable for an innovative self-produced music video which involved Godley singing in front of Creme, as Creme conducted mannequins dressed up as members of a 1930s big band orchestra, and for its chorus hook line, "Strange apparatus...".

It reached the charts in Germany (25th place), the Netherlands (7th place) and Belgium (4th place).[1]
