Happy? is the third album by Canadian singer/songwriter Jann Arden, released in 1997 (see 1997 in music).

The album's title and cover, which features an image of Arden sucking her thumb, are seemingly at odds with Arden's image as a writer and performer of sad love-gone-wrong songs. However, Arden is also widely known in Canada for being gregariously funny and engaging in concert, and her self-deprecating wit has endeared her to fans as much as her music. In addition to her own compositions, the album also contained a cover of the 1960s classic "To Sir With Love".
