Walking on Sunshine is the debut album by new wave band Katrina and the Waves, released in 1983. The album was only released in Canada, but now appears worldwide on the compilation Original Recordings 1983-1984. It has also been remastered and re-released with four bonus tracks on CD, under the title Katrina and the Waves (recognizable by the black and white cover, and not to be confused with the band's self-titled 1985 album, which contains revamped tracks from this and the following album, Katrina and the Waves 2). To complicate things further, a later greatest hits album by the band is also called Walking on Sunshine.

This album contains the original version of the title track, which would be re-recorded two years later and thereupon become the band's biggest US hit.
