"Like to Get to Know You Well" is a song by the English musician Howard Jones released as a single in 1984. It reached number 4 on the UK Singles Chart, and was subsequently included on his remix album The 12" Album. It was later included as a bonus track on CD versions of Jones' second studio album, Dream Into Action (1985).
