Show Some Emotion is a studio album by British singer-songwriter Joan Armatrading, released in 1977 on A&M. In a review for Allmusic, Dave Connolly gave the album a star rating of three out of five. He did not enjoy the album as much as her previous self-titled album, saying that much of it was "like outtakes from that effort". He criticised the lyrics and arrangements, as well as the track placement. However, he praised "Show Some Emotion" and "Willow" as highlights. "The Dean of Rock Critics", Robert Christgau, on the other hand, called her "Sometimes funny, always real, and never ever pretentious", but said that "Most of the meaning of the ordinary-plus lyrics is conveyed by stance and nuance." Show Some Emotion reached No. 6 on the UK Albums Chart, No. 52 on the US Billboard 200 albums chart, and No. 18 on the Australian Kent Music Report albums chart.

Armatrading's 1979 live album Steppin' Out contains two tracks from Show Some Emotion, "Mama Mercy" and "Kissin' and a Huggin'".
