Singles – 45's and Under is a compilation album by Squeeze, released on the A&M Records label on 22 October 1982.[citation needed] The album consists of all their singles from 1978 to 1982 in chronological order, with the exception of their second single, "Bang Bang", and includes a new song, "Annie Get Your Gun", which was released as a single ahead of the album. It was the band's biggest selling album, having been certified platinum in both the UK and the US.

The album included "Is That Love" and "Labelled With Love" produced by Elvis Costello and Roger Bechirian, "Tempted" produced by Elvis Costello and Roger Bechirian and featuring Elvis Costello on backing vocals, and "Black Coffee in Bed" which also featured Costello on backing vocals.[1] Additionally, it included the US single version of "Goodbye Girl", which features slightly different lyrics from both the album and UK single versions. The US version of the album substituted "If I Didn't Love You" for "Labelled with Love".

More recent prints of the album are released by Universal (A&M's parent company) under its 20th Century Masters banner.
