Good Evening is a 1989 album by Marshall Crenshaw. Although critically well-received, it failed to chart.

The disc's eerie, dramatic opening track, "You Should've Been There", has a longer intro on this album than on Rhino's compilation, This Is Easy: The Best of Marshall Crenshaw. The album includes the first commercial release of the Diane Warren song "Some Hearts", which became a hit in 2005 in a version by country singer Carrie Underwood.
