Field Day is the second album by Detroit born musician Marshall Crenshaw. It includes his hit single, "Whenever You're On My Mind", which was aided by a popular early MTV music video and reached # 23 on Billboard's Rock Tracks Chart.

The cover photo was shot in front of Marshall's alma mater Berkley High School. The album peaked at #52 in Billboard magazine, lasting 14 weeks on the chart.

Shortly after the release of Field Day, Marshall released an EP in the UK with five songs, four of which were remixes of the Steve Lillywhite produced songs on the album and one which was a live tune. Critic Robert Christgau gave it a perfect rating: A+.[1]
