Walking on Sunshine is the title track of the critically acclaimed 1978 album by Reggae and Soca artist Eddy Grant on the Parlophone music label. It was the follow-up to his 1977 album Message Man. It features the hits singles, 'Living On The Front Line' and the title track. The former introduced Grant to the mainstream in the UK in 1979, peaking at number 11 in the charts while the latter was Grant's debut in the lower reaches of the US R&B charts (#86).

The title track was covered in 1982 by Rocker's Revenge featuring Donnie Calvin, reaching number one in the USA dance charts and number four in the UK Singles Chart in September that year.
