Gypsy Honeymoon: The Best of Kim Carnes is a compilation album by Kim Carnes, released in 1993. The album received a worldwide release and featured some tracks not previously released in the US or any European territories. Carnes picked the tracks herself.[1]

The title track, "Gypsy Honeymoon", was released as a single in Europe, giving Carnes a minor hit in Germany (#65)[2] where she returned to the charts after an 11-year gap. Collin Raye recorded a version of Gypsy Honeymoon on his 2002 album "Can't Back Down". Carnes provided backing vocals for the track. Some of the tracks on the album such as "I'll Be Here Where the Heart Is" and "Bette Davis Eyes" were newly mixed and do not sound exactly the same as their original release.
