Fearless is the 1988 debut album by British pop group Eighth Wonder. It is the group's only UK album release, is entirely uptempo, and contains six UK-issued singles (the earliest, "Stay With Me", dating back to 1985) including their highest-selling and best-remembered track, the Pet Shop Boys-produced and written "I'm Not Scared" (a #7 hit), and "Cross My Heart" (#13). Fearless peaked at #47 on the UK Albums Chart. Eighth Wonder split up in 1989, with lead singer Patsy Kensit going on to devote herself to her acting career.

Fearless was reissued in the UK by Cherry Red Records in January 2010, with the addition of five bonus tracks.
