"John Cougar" is the fourth album by John Cougar. Released in 1979, following the Australian success of "I Need A Lover" from the previous year's "A Biography" (which did not receive a U.S. release), the album included the aforementioned track for U.S. audiences, as well as a re-working of "A Biography"'s "Taxi Dancer."

"I Need A Lover", upon the release of this album, became a hit in the US as well as in Australia, where "Miami" became his second Top 40 hit. In the US, however, "Small Paradise" was released as a single in place of "Miami," but was not very successful.
