Moods is a studio album by American country music singer, Barbara Mandrell, released in September 1978.

Moods became Mandrell's most successful album during her career up to this point. The album spawned two singles, both of which became number-one country hits, "Sleeping Single in a Double Bed" and a remake of the popular Luther Ingram R&B hit, "(If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don't Want to Be Right". Both singles also charted on the Pop and Adult Contemporary charts. "If Loving You Is Wrong" became Mandrell's only Top 40 Pop hit, peaking at #31. The popularity of these singles made Mandrell's album a success, peaking at #8 on the Top Country Albums chart - her highest charting album up to this point. The album did not peak on the Billboard 200, despite "If Loving You Is Wrong" becoming a Top 40 Pop hit.

Moods consisted of 10 tracks, ranging from sultry ballads to bouncy pop tunes. The album foreshadowed the success Mandrell would have well into the 80s, when she would achieve more best-selling albums and reach the pinnacle of her career. She would become one of the few women to win "Entertainer of the Year" (and the first to ever win it twice) from the Country Music Association and would also win American Music Awards and two Grammy awards.
