Hits is a compilation album by Mike + The Mechanics, released in 1996 except in the United States and Canada, where it was released in 2005. It contains nearly all of the band's hits up to the time of its release. "All I Need Is a Miracle" was re-recorded for the album.
Peter Kane in Q wrote, "These are all songs that are uniformly high on melody and craftsmanship, with mercifully no hidden agenda."
