Whatever Tickles Your Fancy is the third solo album by Irish folk musician Christy Moore, released in 1975.

Since his last album Prosperous in 1972, Christy had recorded three albums with Planxty. He left Planxty soon after, only to realise he had no profile as a solo artist in Ireland. Through playing with Jimmy Faulkner, Declan McNelis, and later Kevin Burke, they soon started to form the basis for an album recording.

The album was recorded in Ashling Studios.
