Music video by Elvis Costello & The Attractions performing New Amsterdam. (C) 1980 Elvis Costello under exclusive license to Universal Music Enterprises, a Division of UMG Recordings, Inc.
The fourth album by Elvis Costello, his third with the Attractions, Get Happy!! is notable for being a dramatic break in tone from Costello's three previous albums, and for being heavily influenced by R&B, ska and soul music. The cover art was intentionally designed to have a "retro" feel, to look like the cover of an old LP with ring wear on both front and back.
It was placed at No. 11 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 greatest albums of the 1980s.
