So Excited! is the ninth studio album by the Pointer Sisters, released in 1982 on the Planet label.

History[edit]

So Excited! spawned a major hit with "American Music" and included a cover of a Prince tune, "I Feel for You," which was again covered by Chaka Khan two years later. The title track reached #30 on the pop charts but later hit #9 when it was revived two years later after being added to the group's 1983 album, Break Out. A third single, "See How the Love Goes", was shelved due to its controversial (at the time) subject matter. The album was remastered and issued on CD with bonus tracks in 2010 by Big Break Records.
