The Best of Howard Jones is a compilation album by the British pop musician Howard Jones. It compiles key hits and album tracks from 1983–1992 during Jones's tenure on the Warner music label, plus one new track, a cover of Donald Fagen's "I.G.Y. (What a Beautiful World)". It does not include his last UK Top 40 hit 'All I Want' from 1986. The album was a success, particularly in the UK where it was certified silver.
