Greatest Hits 1982–1989 is the third greatest hits album, and twentieth album overall, by the American band Chicago, released by Full Moon/Reprise Records on November 21, 1989.[1] Covering the era that stretched from 1982's Chicago 16 to Chicago 19 in 1988, the set is also balanced by the appearances of both Peter Cetera and his replacement Jason Scheff.

A variation of this collection entitled The Heart of... Chicago was issued in countries outside North America, with similar artwork but a different track list including four songs originally released on the Columbia record label.

Greatest Hits 1982–1989 – the band's 20th release overall – is also notable for being Chicago's last release before the dismissal of their founding drummer Danny Seraphine in the following year, and the home to a remixed version of the hit, "What Kind of Man Would I Be?" originally released on Chicago 19.

Unlike the 2 previous Greatest Hits releases, all of the songs were released in their album lengths, except "What Kind of Man Would I Be?". Some US copies on vinyl, and possibly CD copies as well, list "Along Comes a Woman" but actually contain "Remember the Feeling" (originally the flipside of "Hard Habit to Break").
