Living in Oz is the seventh studio album released by rock musician Rick Springfield by RCA Records in 1983. The album was quickly certified Platinum in America.
In 1984, Springfield was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance for the "Affair of the Heart" single, which peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 and #10 on the Cash Box Top 100.
The album's title is an allusion to living in Australia (Oz = Australia).
