"Lovely to See You" is a 1969 song by the progressive rock band The Moody Blues. It was written by the band's guitarist Justin Hayward, and was recorded and released in 1969 on the Moody Blues Album On the Threshold of a Dream.

Despite not being released as a single, "Lovely to See You" can be considered the album's most popular song, being a staple of rock radio, and is often performed live in concert as their opening song. "Lovely to See You" even became more popular than the album's only single "Never Comes the Day", which itself was a commercial flop.

The song's popularity also led the Moody Blues to name one of their live albums after it. Lovely to See You: Live was recorded at a performance at the Greek Theater, and was released in 2005, with the song "Lovely to See You" as the lead track. The song was the first to be played at the launch of the Bournemouth (UK) radio station 2CR.
