Katrina and the Waves is the third album by new wave band Katrina and the Waves, and the first released on a major label, released in 1985 (see 1985 in music). The majority of tracks were re-mixed and overdubbed versions of songs that had appeared on their first two albums; the tracks "Walking on Sunshine" and "Going Down to Liverpool" were entirely re-recorded versions of songs from their first independently released album.

This version of "Walking on Sunshine" became a top-ten pop hit in the United States.
